Product Description

To ensure light remains confined within the core/cladding or cladding, adiabatic tapers are produced. AFL offers fiber components for applications including mode field adapting to minimize splice loss; producing combiners to increase the power in a fiber; creating fiber sensors that utilize the interaction of an external material coming near or in contact with the evanescent wave of a severally tapered fiber; tapering of capillary tubes for unique applications.
