Specialty Fibers

Tapered and Lensed Fibers

Key Features

  • Improved coupling to and from waveguides, laser diodes and photodiodes
  • Singlemode, multimode or polarization maintaining fibers
  • AR coated endfaces available
  • Can be made based on either spot size or taper shape
  • Metalized fiber versions available

Description

Tapered and lensed fibers offer a convenient way to improve coupling between optical fibers and waveguide devices, laser diodes or photo diodes. By laser shaping the fiber end, the light can be transformed to improve mode matching and coupling efficiency with the waveguide device, laser diode chip or photodiode chip. The manufacturing process allows for improved coupling to either circular or oval input spots.

OZ Optics tapered and lensed fibers are manufactured by laser shaping the endface to create the optimal light output/input for specific applications.

Applications

  • Active component pigtailing
  • DWDM devices
  • Waveguide packaging
  • MEMS device connections
  • Miniaturized fiber optic components
  • Coupling to circular or elliptical beam outputs
