3D MMux™ Photonic Lantern designed to optimise space division multiplexing (SDM)

The 3D MMux™ Photonic Lantern series of products are a new class of glass components designed to interface Few Mode Fibers (FMFs) and Single Mode Fibers (SMF) in a monolithic, scalable, compact solution with best in class fiber alignment precision.

Our unique technology consists of laser scribed 3D waveguides which act as an interface between FMFs and SMFs. This compact and fully packaged solution easily integrates with existing technology to minimise disruption and maximise performance.

Optimised for the very latest OFS fiber, the Photonic lantern is available in 3 and 6 channel configurations. Other interface geometries are available on request.

Using the Photonic Lantern users can dramatically increase the amount of data transferred across an optical fiber whilst minimising space.
