Fiber to Fiber Coupling Solutions

Optoscribe supplies state-of-the-art fiber to fiber coupling solutions designed to act as an interface between different types or configurations of optical fibers.

Using Optoscribe’s 3D photonic integrated circuits, a wide range of complex interconnect geometries are now possible to manufacture. Low loss coupling between arbitrary configurations of one or two dimensional arrays can be achieved with ease, using industry standard assembly processes.
