Global growth in the demand to move ever increasing amounts of data quickly, is fuelling the development of the optical data communications network.
The need to handle more data more quickly, is in turn driving demand for increased bandwidth from reduced real-estate. Developments in optical transceiver technology can deliver improved performance from the compact small form-factor (SFP) package.
OpTek’s proprietary LaserCleave™ technology is key to delivering ultra-short optical pigtails required to connect the PIC inside the SFP. Using a combination of laser processing and fusing splicing, OpTek is able to create an exceptionally compact fiber tail that includes an adiabatic sport size converter, angled optical quality coupling face and precise protrusion length for the coupling facet.
