Building on its core fiber Bragg grating (FBG) competencies, Indigo Photonics Ltd. will unveil several new products at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) conference, in Anaheim, March 19-21, 2002. The new products include Ultra Narrow-band filters, Gain Flattening Filters, Complex Grating Arrays, and a Multiple Channel Tunable Transmission Filter.

The Ultra Narrow-band Filter is an athermally packaged in-fiber device, with outstanding spectral characteristics, including sharp spectral-roll off and high rejection, says the company. The device is designed for filtering or removing unwanted carrier signals in Sub-Carrier Modulation-based transmission systems, ensuring the transmitted signal quality is not compromised.

Indigo Photonics' Gain Flattening Filters are designed to flatten the output spectrum from an Erbium or Raman amplifier. Working closely with customers, Indigo Photonics says it provides reduced time to manufacture, with customized devices having lower profile errors and excellent thermal performance.

The existing range of uniform period fiber Bragg grating products has been extended with the addition of high-strength continuous arrays of filters, designed for cascaded Raman amplification and sensing applications. The elimination of intra-array splicing ensures high-performance components, with excellent strength, reliability, and accuracy, claim company representatives.

The Multiple Channel Tunable Transmission Filter is a high-performance tunable module, utilizing Indigo Photonics' proprietary Bragg grating and athermal packaging technology, in combination with an actuation system. External analogue or digital command inputs give the user command flexibility while the fast tuning time and small compact size make the module ideally suited for applications in telecommunications and optical fiber sensing.

Coinciding with the launch of these new products Indigo Photonics will also launch their new Web site, tailored to provide comprehensive and detailed information on all of Indigo's recent activities, new product developments, and core technologies.
