Laser Components has introduced coatings, designed for use on optical
fiber end faces. With these coatings back reflections are reduced by
nearly 3% at the interface between glass and air. The F&E devision
has continued to make developments in this area, which has resulted in
new standard designs.
The cables are available with a robust and, yet, flexible metal jacket
as a protective covering around the optical fiber. A corrugated tube
made of stainless steel and, thus, the best metal jacket available is
used. To ensure that the connection between two optical fiber plugs
connected by a metal jacket is potential free, vacuum-suitable
isolators are mounted on both ends between the plug and the metal
If less robust protective jackets are required, LASER COMPONENTS offers
AR-coated fibers which are also available with protective jackets made
of Teflon. Naturally, these fibers will also be available as so-called
"bare fibers" (i.e., without a protective jacket).
The cables are available with SMA connectors or a D-80 plug. Both
connectors have a free-standing fiber; the fiber bore hole of said
connectors can be adjusted for use with different types of fibers. For
very high power, plugs with copper ferrules are recommend.
