Polarisation Maintaining

  1. Polarisation Maintaining Connectors / Assemblies

    High Extinction Ratio Fibre Interfaces

    The field of application of Polarization Maintaining elements has expanded beyond traditional markets to brand new ones, from research to industrial environments: Biomedicine, Spectroscopy, Metrology, Sensorics, Telecommunications, Lasertechnology, Surveillance & Security, Lithography.
    DIAMOND supplies high-quality solutions to polarization maintaining (PM) and polarizing (PZ) fiber optical interfaces for optimal control of the signal’s polarization state. Low insertion losses (IL) combined with high polarization extinction ratios (PER) and higher return losses (RL) are achieved over very broad spectral ranges thanks to a combination of accurate optical and mechanical design.

    • Available connector types are: E-2000™, F-3000™ SC, FC, LSA (DIN), AVIM, Mini-AVIM and DMI.
      E-2000™ PM available as IP65 and/or IP65/EtO.

      FEATURES AND BENEFITS

      • Proprietary Active Core Alignment (ACA) process for minimal eccentricity between fiber’s core and ferrule to guarantee unmatched low insertion losses
      • Active Polarization Orientation (APO) procedure for optimal alignment between the mechanical connector’s key and the true polarization (fast or slow) axis to guarantee the highest PER in a mated configuration
      • Optimized polishing techniques for excellent return losses values
      • 100% front face inspection

  2. PM+ connectors - Polarization Maintaining

    The new DIAMOND PM+ product line was developed following customer demand for improved power extinction ration (PER), coupled with ultra-low insertion loss (IL).  The PM+ product line is available with the DIAMOND E-2000™, DMI and Mini AVIM™ connectors.  These connectors incorporate an orientation keying system that allows for a very high PER. Several configurations have been confirmed for wavelengths of 532nm and 1550nm. Other connectors showing larger orientation keying tolerance are still well served by our standard PM product line.

    Polarization-maintaining optical fibers are used in specialty applications often found in fiber optic sensing, metrology and laser technology. They are also commonly used in telecommunications, when polarized light is required at the input. In addition, polarization maintaining is expanding rapidly into other markets, such as industrial environments, medical science, surveillance & security and more. DIAMOND supplies high-quality solutions to polarization maintaining (PM) and polarizing (PZ) fiber optical interfaces for optimal control of the signal’s polarization state. Low insertion losses (IL), combined with high polarization extinction ratios (PER) and very high return losses (RL) are achieved over very broad spectral ranges, due to a combination of accurate optical and mechanical design.
