TORQUAY, England, March 4, 2013 — Gooch & Housego has introduced ultra-wideband fused couplers for the optical coherence tomography (OCT) market.
The fused fiber couplers, featuring low loss and wide bandwidth, are suitable for designing compact interferometer modules for OCT applications including long haul-telecommunications.
The ultra-wideband family of fused fiber couplers has been developed in response to recent advances in OCT technology, where certain applications are demanding wider optical source bandwidths to improve image resolution.
The company says that it has recently shipped components operating over 260-nm bandwidth centered at 1050 nm.
