Photon Advanced Technologies launches small-form-factor polarization-maintaining cable assemblies

Dec. 17, 2001
December 17, 2001--Photon Advanced Technologies LLC has launched its new small form factor (SFF) polarizing-maintaining (PM) cable assembly line. Photon Advanced has also added LC and MU to its current PM cable assembly portfolio.

Photon Advanced Technologies LLC has launched its new small form factor (SFF) polarizing-maintaining (PM) cable assembly line. Photon Advanced has also added LC and MU to its current PM cable assembly portfolio.

Required for any system in which a polarization state must be maintained (for example, for pump combiners or for laboratory use), PM has only recently become available in SFF, claims the company. Fiber-optic companies that use PM fiber in their systems can now utilize a product which gives them the high density application benefits associated with LC and MU connector products.

Photon's polarization-maintaining cable assemblies feature a standard return loss better than 50dB and a standard insertion loss performance of 0.5dB (against master, per connector). They are available with either 2-mm or 1.6-mm cable, or 900-micron buffered fiber.

Photon Advanced Technologies is based out of Poway, CA, and Ottawa, Canada, and its product portfolio includes specialty fiber-optic cable assemblies (standard, small form factor, multi-fiber, fan-outs, polarization-maintaining, master, reference, etc.) and transceiver fiber stubs.
