Near Infrared Coupler
 

The Near Infrared Coupler splits light at any selected wavelength from 700nm to 1150nm. Designed for applications in fibre laser, sensor and avionics applications, the coupler utilizes G&H’s low loss fused fibre technology. No light leaves the fibre and therefore no alignment is required; and there are no unwanted reflections. Furthermore the output fibre pigtails may be directly integrated into beam delivery systems.  For components and modules which combine different wavelengths within the near infrared

region please refer to the datasheet ‘Near Infrared WDM’.

PM Coupler
 

The G&H PM Coupler enables the accurate monitoring and splitting of optical signals in polarisation maintaining fibre. Manufactured using industry-standard PM fibre, the PM Coupler is available in any coupling ratio from 1% to 50%. Based on G&H’s fused fibre technology, the PM Coupler demonstrates very low loss, high power handling and there is no price penalty for adding a second input port. The centre operating wavelength may be chosen from within a wide variety of operating passbands, including 980, 1064, 1310, 14xx, 15xx and 16xx.

 

In common with all PM components, it is necessary to launch into either the slow or the fast axis to maintain polarisation. For the G&H PM Coupler, specifications are based on slow axis launch, although fast axis versions are also available if requested.

 

Key Features:

All PM fibre construction

Low excess loss

High power handling

980, 1064, C, L and S bands available

Slow axis operation as standard

Fast axis operation also available

 

Applications:

Power monitoring of PM sources

PM Low Ratio Tap Coupler
 

The G&H Fused PM LRT, taps off low power from a signal path whilst maintaining polarisation through the component. G&H proprietary PM manufacturing technology provides tap ratios as low as 0.01% with ultra low loss and high polarisation extinction ratio. The all fibre construction and excellent loss characteristics provide exceptional reliability at high powers. PM LRT’s also exhibit improved tap ratio stability when input polarisation extinction ratio levels are low or fluctuating.

 

These high performance parts are available at a range of wavelengths with different fibre options. PM LRTs can therefore be readily specified in a wide variety of applications, enabling rapid design cycles and new project builds.

 

Standard parts are available at wavelengths from 900 – 1600nm. For other wavelengths or coupling ratios please contact the sales office.

Ultra Low Ratio Tap Coupler
 

The Ultra Low Ratio Tap Coupler splits a very small amount of light from a signal path to a tap port. Tested at up to 50W optical power, it’s main application is in the monitoring of very high power optical sources such as fibre lasers. Low tap ratios such as 0.1%, 0.01% or 0.001% enable the monitoring photodetector to operate without damage or saturation.

 

G&H proprietary manufacturing technology provides ultra-low loss in the signal path, thereby maximising optical power handling. Consistently high return loss (>55dB) reduces the amount of optical power reflected back along the input fibre. This helps the fibre laser operate in a stable manner.

 

Standard parts are available for wavelengths from 700 to 1599nm. For other wavelengths, coupling ratios or customised fibre types please contact the sales office.

 

Key Features:

Tap ratio up to 40dB

Visible Wavelength Coupler
 

The Visible Wavelength Coupler splits or combines light in the visible region. Versions optimised for any wavelength within the range 450nm to 700nm may be selected.

 

Designed for applications in display systems, sensors and biomedical equipment, the coupler utilises G&H’s low loss fused fibre technology.

 

No light leaves the fibre and therefore no alignment is required; and there are no unwanted reflections. Furthermore the output fibre pigtails may be directly integrated into beam delivery systems.

 

For components and modules which combine different wavelengths within the visible region please refer to the datasheet ‘Visible Wavelength Combiners’.
