Customized Fiber Port Clusters

Compact, rugged and highly efficient opto-mechanical unit for splitting/combining multiple ports

Fiber Port Clusters are compact opto-mechanical units that combine one or multiple fiber-coupled sources and then splits the combined radiation into multiple output fiber cables with high efficiency and variable splitting ratio. Some configurations are also used to simply combine radiation or split up radiation into multiple output fiber cables.

 A fundamental component of a Fiber Port Cluster is the Laser Beam Coupler, which is the input into the opto-mechanical unit collimating the input radiation and, finally, couples the radiation back into the polarization-maintaining fiber cables. The stability of the total Fiber Port Cluster is determined by the stability of the laser beam coupler. 

The Fiber Port Clusters are based on multicube elements as well as half wave-plates and (polarization) beam splitters and thus the combination and multiplicity of possible systems is almost endless. The list below shows some examples of customized solutions. Standard configurations can be found here.
