Alliance Fiber Optic Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: AFOP) has released a new line of polarization-maintaining (PM) fiber assembly products for advanced telecommunication requirements. These high-performance connectivity products include PM fiber jumpers and pigtails, PM collimators, and PM fiber array units designed to satisfy the requirements in 100-GHz coherent and related communication system subassemblies.

With high extinction ratio and low insertion loss, AFOP polarization-maintaining products improve manufacturing yields and overall product performance, the company claims.

The polarization-maintaining parts are available in FC, LC, and SC terminations with either UPC or APC polish. AFOP says its axis alignment accuracy delivers improved results in critical assembly of PM fiber attachment to lasers and modulators.
