Bundles

A fiber optic bundle consists of multiple optical fibers in a single assembly. The fibers can be configured as a spot, line, or as required for the application. Multi-branch fiber optic bundles can be used to split light into several beams, or to combine light from several inputs into a single beam. Complete customization of fiber count, terminations, fiber routing and number of legs allows for a design that meets your needs.

Features

  • Fiber materials: Fused silica, hard plastic clad silica, borosilicate glass, fluoride glass and plastic (POF)
  • Numerical aperture (NA): 0.10 to 0.66
  • Length up to 100 m, even for multi-fiber assemblies
  • Wavelength coverage: options spanning from Deep-UV to MIR (190 to 5500 nm)
  • Straight, bifurcated and multi-branch configurations
  • Standard (SMA-905, FC, ST, etc.) or custom connectors, custom design ferrules
  • Custom fiber arrangement (random, scrambled or mapped)
  • Fiber coatings can be stripped to improve packing efficiency
  • Standard temperature range: -40 °C to + 100 °C; both cryogenic and high temperature (up to 280 °C) available
  • Additional options: high vacuum compatibility, chemical resistance

Benefits

  • Design flexibility in light distribution and management
  • Greater mechanical flexibility when compared to rigid single large core fibers

Applications

  • Split light from a source into several outputs
  • Merge light from several sources into a single output
  • Locate equipment away from harsh environments
  • Reconfigure the shape of light beam to adapt it to particular conditions
  • Redistribute input light intensity
