Gould’s 2000nm (2micron) (2µm) Eye Single Mode (SM) fiber optic couplers & optical splitters are manufactured using the fused biconical taper process on fully software controlled automatic fabrication stations. The process consists of placing two or more fibers adjacent to each other, then fusing and stretching them to create a central coupling region. A fused coupler is a structure formed by two independent optical fibers. Please visit our Fused Biconical Taper (FBT) page for more information.
Gould Fiber Optics has developed a GlasSolder process for making a glass to glass bond between optical fibers and silica substrate. The patented technique produces a uniform “solder” bead that affixes the fiber to the substrate to provide exceptional mechanical and environmental stability.
Gould’s 2000nm (2micron) (2µm) Eye Safe Single mode are manufactured using Nufern SM1950 fiber and available in various coupling ratios such as 50/50, 40/60, 30/70, 20/80, 10/90, 5/95/ & 1/99. Other coupling ratio options are available upon request. Operating wavelengths range from 1900, 1950, 2000, 2050 & 2100nm.
