Pump-Signal Combiner

Pump-Signal Combiner

PSC611: Pump-Signal Combiner, (6+1) x 1

The PSC611 is an all-glass, pump-signal combiner that offers:

  • Less than 0.3 dB insertion loss on all channels
  • Polarization extinction ratio (PER) greater than 23 dB maintained through the signal channel
  • Flexible and scalable design, based on Chiral Photonics’ proprietary pitch reducing optical fiber array (PROFA) technology, with independent control of channel spacing, mode field diameter, and channel count.

Speak to us about your custom or OEM needs as this design facilitates use at 1060 nm as well as the shown 1550 nm configuration. The design can also be modified to suit your specific fiber needs:

PSC611- HP: High Power, Pump-Signal Combiner, (6+1) x 1

The PSC611-HP is a high power, all-glass, pump-signal combiner that offers:

  • Insertion loss of 0.3 dB or less on all channels
  • Compatibility optimized for the following fibers:
    • LMA 20/400 (NA: 0.065/0.46) double clad signal fiber
    • 200/240 (NA:0.22) pump fibers
  • Flexible and scalable design, based on Chiral Photonics’ proprietary pitch reducing optical fiber array (PROFA) technology, with independent control of channel spacing, mode field diameter, and channel count.

 

Speak to us about your custom or OEM needs. The combiner can, for example, be supplied pre-spliced to an active double-clad fiber of choice. The design can also be modified to suit your specific fiber needs.

  1. Speak to us about other wavelength requirements as this design can accommodate both Er (1550 nm) and Yb (1060 nm) bands. Please let us know your input, output and pump fiber requirements and we will work with you to adapt an existing design or optimize a new design to your combining needs.
  2. Polarization extinction ratio, if PM fiber is used.
  3. Standard package types that have been provided. Water-cooled package have also been provided. Please speak to us about your custom package and splicing needs.
