NP Photonics, Spectra-Physics Develop Micro Fiber Amplifier Products
TUCSON, Ariz., March 26 -- NP Photonics and Spectra-Physics, a Thermo Electron business, said they have introduced the first miniaturized optical fiber based amplifier products for telecommunications. The Scorpion Amplet MMP-7012 and the Scorpion Gainlet MMP-7010 use NP Photonics' erbium micro-fiber amplifier (EMFA) technology with Spectra-Physics' laser diodes. The cost effective EMFA technology uses a proprietary erbium-doped glass to produce high optical gain over just a few centimeters of fiber, rather than over many meters, as with traditional EDFAs, the companies said.
