Fiber Optic Cables With AR-Coated End Faces
Laser Components introduces fiber optic cables with AR-coated end faces that can reduce back reflections at the interface between glass and air by nearly 3%, setting new standards in high-power applications. These fiber optic cables with AR coatings reduce coupling losses, making them effective in applications including power transmission, medical technology, and material processing.

Point Source Emitters For Fiber Optic Applications
Marktech Optoelectronics' Point Source Emitters yield superior results when used in fiber optic applications such as medical fiber, short haul fiber, encoders, and machine vision due to features like uniform optical power distribution, the ability to place the fiber optic cable close to the die, a narrow spectral bandwidth, and no “dark spot”. This Point Source Emitters series is offered in a variety of high reliability, highly accurate packages ranging from through-hole metal can to miniature ceramic surface mounts. Custom sorting and packaging are also available.

DWDM Multi-Wavelength Meter (428 Series)
Bristol Instruments offers a family of multi-wavelength meters for testing DWDM signals. The 428 Series Multi-Wavelength Meter measures the wavelength of as many as 250 optical channels to the highest accuracy available. In addition, the model 428 simultaneously measures power and OSNR to fully characterize DWDM components and transmission systems.

785-nm Compact Raman Boxx Datasheet
PD-LD's Wavelength Stabilized Compact Raman Source: LuxxMaster LML Series Compact Raman Boxx comes standard at 785-nm (stabilized to within ±0.5nm); however, 532-nm and other custom wavelengths are available. The Compact Raman Boxx also features a built-in thermo-electric cooler for laser temperature control and a built-in monitor photodiode for automatic power control.

Fluorescence Measurements Application Note
Avantes has developed fiber optics, light sources, and spectrometers for use in fluorescence measurement applications. Fluorescence spectroscopy is a technique used to excite electrons in molecules by subjecting them to a light source which then causes them to emit light of a lower energy. This application note discusses the various solutions Avantes offers for applications involving fluorescence measurements.

Datasheet: Non-Circular Core Silica Optical Fibers
CeramOptec’s non-circular core silica optical fibers show the same exceptional performance and transmission as Optran UV/WF fibers with circular core geometry. When used with diode lasers which give a square shaped output, the square core fibers offer greater coupling efficiencies than circular fibers.
