LightPath Technologies Inc., supplier of passive optical components, has announced its fused fiber polarization maintaining collimator product line for use in transmission, amplifier, and modulator applications in fiber-optic networks.

Built on LightPath Technologies' fiber fusion technology, the fused fiber polarization maintaining collimator has demonstrated superior performance, claims the company. Its patented fiber fusion technology produces a monolithic silica collimator with an adhesive free optical path, allowing high power handling capability. Fused fiber polarization maintaining collimators consistently demonstrate extinction ratios of 26dB or higher and typical insertion loss of 0.2 dB and lower.

These fused fiber polarization maintaining collimators are available in a variety of standard and custom silica and metal housings or LightPath's compact "unhoused" configurations. All packaging configurations meet Telcordia GR-1209 and 1221 reliability requirements.
