You are looking for PLC and fiber array adhesion with high reliability? Try NTT-AT’s series of adhesives for optical waveguides!
Within this series you find acrylate-based adhesives (AT6001, AT8224)with excellent durability that have cleared a large number of reliability tests. Epoxy adhesives are also part of this series, with a refractive index that can be accurately controlled within a range of 1.456 to 1.567 (±0.005, Na-D) – or with a fixed refractive index that is the same as quartz to deliver low reflectance (GA700L, GA700H).
UV curing of the adhesives for optical waveguides allows for adhesion in a short time frame and makes alignment easy. The adhesives withstand a solder reflow process for Si Photonics (+260 °C).
In order to achieve high reliability, a product must clear the tests conducted by the users themselves. If you have had even just a bit of dissatisfaction in reliability test results in the past, please put NTT-AT’s adhesives for optical waveguides to the test.
