Known as producer of high-precision fiber optic components, SQS offers 2D fiber arrays which allow submicron arrangement of fibers in 2D matrix. High accuracy drilling is achieved by unique combination of technologies: UV laser and precise positioning system.

SQS offers customized solutions of 2D matrix patterns, and choice of single-mode, multimode, or polarization maintaining optical fibers including lensed fibers.

2D fiber array polishing process is quite demanding because of a larger front surface, and it had to be accommodated to these specific requirements. Reached optical parameters (RL) of 2D fiber arrays by SQS correspond to values of 1D fiber arrays or ceramic ferrules.

2D Fiber Array assembly may be accommodated to customer requests. Fiber Array may be positioned in a metal flange for easier handling. Optical Fibers may be protected by tubing, and terminated by any type of optical connector (single fiber or multifiber).

Features:

  • SM or MM optical fiber
  • customized solutions available
  • various materials (borosilicate, fused silica)
  • Fiber core offset < 1 µm

Applications:

  • Optical switches / telecommunications
  • Optical sensors / test and measuremet
  • Multichannel rotary joints / medicine
  • Fiber connection to optical integrated circuits (IPD) / semiconductor industry
  • Fiber optic lasers
