OPTICAL FIBER SWITCH FOR MULTIMODE FIBERS
Jun 1999piezosystem jena GmbHRequest Info
The FS 102 optical fiber switch for multimode fibers from piezosystem jena GmbH allows fast switching between several measurement channels or between measurement and reference channels in a fiber-coupled spectrometer. The switch can handle fiber core diameters ranging from 100 to 600 µm and has demonstrated <1-dB insertion loss and <250-dB crosstalk. Switching time ranges from 2 to 5 ms, depending on the core diameter, and each switching position has high repeatability and is stable over a wide temperature range. Wavelength range is unlimited, and there is no wavelength-dependent loss in the measurement assembly. Options include fiber connectors, a variety of fiber types, and latching or nonlatching configurations. The switch is suitable for optical measurement systems, fiber optic engineering, laser technologies and telecommunications applications.
