Polarization-maintaining, fiber-pigtailed V-groove assemblies to control polarization-dependent loss and polarization mode dispersion in 40-Gb/s applications, are available from Oz Optics Ltd. The company says that the arrays are made using precision silicon wafer technology, which enables submicron alignment accuracy. Designed for use in next-generation photonic devices, they exhibit extinction ratios of more than 20 dB with 0.5° alignment accuracy of the stress rods with respect to the V-groove substrate. Different types of fiber can be used in each position, and hermetic feedthroughs can be made for multiple fibers.
