It has been three years that a partnership between ALPhANOV and NKT Photonics has been signed allowing photonic crystal fiber (PCFs) users to take advantage of ALPhANOV’s capabilities in special fiber interfacing.
Today, more than a hundred laboratories and companies around the world have benefited from this know-how, making it easier to integrate and use PCF fibers.
Now, a catalogue summarizes ALPhANOV’s offer in this field, allowing customers and future customers to better understand all PCFinterfacing possibilities, either on hollow-core fibers, double-clad doped fibers, large mode area and non-linear fibers:
- Implementation of endcaps capable of handling high average power
- Splice of fibers and mode field adapters
- Achievement of optical functions at the fiber tip via prisms, lenses.
- Development of custom components, such as pump and signal combiners for microstructured active fiber
In addition to standard services on PCF fibers, ALPhANOV addresses your custom needs such as on-demand developments, feasibility studies or prototyping.
