|High-power optical fibers are displacing traditional bulk optical elements in applications such as laser sources, optical amplifiers, and beam delivery systems. However, their high signal or pump powers, large spot sizes or mode areas, and large fiber diameters pose interconnection difficulties including signal loss, mode conversion, polarization crosstalk, reflections, localized heating, end facet damage, and even catastrophic device failure. Various technologies have been developed to address these difficulties including mode field matching technologies, high-power fiber terminations, modal content measurements, and large-diameter fiber cleavers and fusion splicers. This course provides attendees with both conceptual and practical knowledge concerning high-power single-mode, few-mode, and multimode optical fiber interconnection.|
|Andrew D. Yablon earned the Ph.D.
from M.I.T. in Cambridge, MA. From 1998 until 2000 he was Senior
Research Scientist at Vytran Corporation in Morganville, NJ, where he
developed novel fiber processing and fusion splicing technologies. From
2000 until 2008 he was a Member of Technical Staff at OFS Laboratories
in Murray Hill, NJ (formerly the Optical Fiber Research Dept. of Bell
Laboratories, Lucent Technologies). In September, 2008 Dr.
Yablon founded Interfiber Analysis.
Dr. Yablon has participated as an author on over 80 peer reviewed publications, holds 22 US Patents, and authored the textbook Optical Fiber Fusion Splicing. His current research interests include optical fiber mode characterization, optical fiber refractive index measurement, and fiber interconnection. Dr. Yablon is a Senior Member of the OSA and has previously served as Chair for the Fibers and Propagations Effects Subcommittee of OFC/NFOEC.
|This material is intended for designers and builders of high-power single-mode, few-mode, and multimode optical fiber lasers, amplifiers, and beam delivery systems. This course builds upon a basic knowledge of optical waveguide theory.|
