The Fiber-Fiber™ Series of optical switch is based on a patented MEMS technology that self-aligns a fiber directly to another fiber with a tiny gap filled with an index-matching liquid. The breakthrough technology enables light to propagate continuously without interruptions and distortions, eliminating the need for lenses, AR coating, and reflections from internal surfaces. It offers unparalleled advantages of a nearly lossless of about 0.2dB for all ports (below 0.01dB with special order), broad wavelength operation from 200nm~4000nm, little back-reflection, no distortion to the mode properties for multimode transmission, amicable to any fiber types, vibration insensitive, moisture resistance, and high optical power handling. It is also the lowest-cost solution in the industry. We offer two platforms: MEMS for fiber counts up to 8 and motor-driven for large fiber port counts up to 300. The Fiber-Fiber™ optical switches have a broad customer base ranging from optical measurements/testing systems, spectroscopy (including Raman and fluorescence), industrial production and process control, space satellites, and biomedical.
