AR Coatings for Optical Fibers Boost the Efficieny About 6%

For Best Transmission Efficiency

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) Official measurements have confirmed it: LASER COMPONENTS' optical fibers with coated end surfaces yield a 6% higher transmission efficiency - and the coating is inexpensive!

For almost 30 years now the company has manufactured laser optics with hard dielectric coatings. The technical know-how has been transferred in the past few years to the coating of optical fiber end surfaces and been made available for entry into the market.

After assembly, the fibers are coated using physical vapor deposition, PVD, to achieve high damage thresholds. Due to this fast coating method and flexible capacities, these coatings are surprisingly inexpensive.

Anti-reflection (AR) coatings are available for one, two, or three wavelengths. The so-called single AR coating is used for one wavelength (e.g. 808 nm), the dual AR coating for two wavelengths (e.g. 808 nm + 980 nm), and the broadband AR is a coating for a wide wavelength range (e.g. 460 nm - 700 nm).
