Direct Coupling Optical Switches – Fiber-Fiber™

  • Ultra-Low Loss, as low as 0.1dB
  • Large Attenuation up to 65dB
  • Broadband 200 to 4000 nm
  • All Fiber Types: SM, MM, PM, Special
  • High Optical Power Handling 1 W
  • Low Cost

The Fiber-FiberTM Series of optical switch is based on a patent-pending micro-mechanical technology that self-aligns a fiber directly to another fiber with a tiny gap that is filled with an index-matching liquid.  The breakthrough technology enables light propagates in a continuous medium without interruptions, consequently eliminating the need for lenses and AR coating.  It offers unparalleled advantages of a very low loss of about 0.3dB for all ports,   broad wavelength operation from 200nm-4000nm, little back-reflection, amicable to any fiber types, and high optical power handling.  It is also the lowest cost solution in the industry. We offer two platforms: MEMS for fiber count up to 12 and motor-driven for large fiber port count up to 300.   The Fiber-Fiber TM optical switches have a broad customer base ranging from optical measurements/test systems telecommunications, spectroscopy (including Raman and fluorescence), industrial production and process control, telecommunications, as well as in the biomedical.
