TAPS/Photodiodes – Directional Fiber Optics Power Monitors
OZ Optics’ line of optical taps and power monitors is a finalist for the 2016 Prism Awards for photonics innovation in optics and optical components. “Our innovative technology has been patented worldwide, including China, and offers capabilities that others cannot equal. The Prism Award nomination is terrific recognition of those unique capabilities.” said CEO Ömür Sezerman.
Based on patented technology using Femtosecond lasers to write waveguides directly inside optical fibers, OZ Optics optical tap monitors combine the optical tap design with a photodiode in a single package. Optical taps work at a variety of wavelengths, including visible, near IR and 2 micron wavelengths and are suitable for high power applications. Taps can be constructed in many fiber types, including specialty fibers such as polarization maintaining fibers and photonic crystal fibers. The device is Telcordia GR468 tested, making it well suited for the telecommunications industries. The manufacturing process permits full automation, thus sharply reducing manufacturing costs.
