The demand for advanced fiber delivery is rapidly increasing, and many industrial and scientific applications benefit greatly from broadband, high power, polarization-maintaining, single-mode light delivery.
Photonic Crystal Fiber Large Mode Area (PCF LMA) fibers from NKT Photonics are ideal for highly demanding applications. One example is semiconductor inspection, where single-mode delivery of broadband light is essential to ensure correct processing. Another is quantum optics, where the transport of high power, single-mode, narrow (<kHz) linewidth light is paramount for cold atom trapping.
Cutting-edge connector interface solutions
To ensure easy interfacing to the applications, NKT Photonics is now combining their PCF LMA fibers with cutting-edge connector interface solutions from ALPhANOV. The first result of the collaboration is the immediate release of a new range of off-the-shelf aeroGUIDE fiber delivery products available through NKT Photonics. Custom fiber delivery solutions are also available directly through ALPhANOV.
“Our relationship spans over 10 years. We are happy to collaborate with ALPhANOV to, again, allow the combination of our core technology platforms. Together, we will serve a growing market with our unique aeroGUIDE PCF LMA delivery products”, says Carsten Thomsen, VP of Ultrafast Lasers & Fiber Technology from NKT Photonics.
General Manager Benoît Appert-Collin from ALPhANOV adds, “Leveraging our expertise in connector technology for interfacing NKT Photonics’ unique fibers to applications is key in this partnership. We look forward to collaborating with NKT Photonics in providing user-friendly aeroGUIDE fiber delivery solutions for the photonics market.”
The new aeroGUIDE products are available now.
