As a leading, U.S. based manufacturer of fiber optic products, Gould continues to push the envelope of possibility. The company’s team of highly skilled and experienced engineers consistently strives to improve our existing fiber optic products while also developing new technologies for the challenges of tomorrow.
Advanced Fiber Optic Products to Suit Any Challenge
Gould offers a wide breadth of products consisting of:
- Singlemode & Multimode couplers/splitters
- Course Wavelength Division Multiplexers (CWDMs)
- Wavelength Division Multiplexers (WDMs)
- Single and Dual Window Couplers
- Tree and Star Couplers
- Polarization Maintaining Couplers
- Interconnect Devices
- Planar Waveguide Technologies
Couplers with superior reliability.
Gould couplers are manufactured using the Fused biconical taper process(FBT). The process consists of placing two or more fibers adjacent to each other, then fusing and stretching them to create a central coupling region. Having perfected the FBT process over the years, Gould supplies superior components in both reliability and performance.
Components tailored to you.
Our Planar Waveguide splitters are manufactured in a clean room environment using Ion-Exchange based manufacturing stations. We have the capability to build PLC (planar lightwave circuits) chips and package them to specific customer needs.
Patented technology for enhanced performance.
Gould Fiber Optics has been awarded many patents on design, build and packaging various optical fibers and integrated optics based components with high optical specifications and harsh environmental operating conditions. Chief among those would be Gould’s highly acclaimed GlasSolderTM manufacturing process, a specialized bonding technique that has created remarkable advances in field reliability and athermal packaging which allows for the manufacture of a glass-to-glass bond between optical fibers and a silica substrate. This bond is much stronger than epoxy and is not susceptible to degradation from humidity. For more details about our patents, please visit our patents page
