Polarization Maintaining and Single Mode Splitters; 1260-1620 nm; Splitting Ratio 3.1%-50%; Polarization Dependent Loss 0.2 dB; Directivity >50 dB

Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) Splitters combine a silica glass waveguide process together with precision aligned fiber V-groove arrays to provide a reliable, low cost way to split light from one fiber into many fibers within a very small form factor package. OZ Optics has leveraged its expertise in polarization maintaining components to offer the PLCS series of polarization maintaining (PM) and single mode (SM) PLC splitters, with superior polarization performance for your application.

The PLCS series of PM and SM PLC splitters feature low insertion loss, low PDL, high return loss and excellent uniformity over a wide wavelength range, from 1260 nm to 1620 nm, and work in temperatures from -40°C to +85°C. These products meet or exceed Telcordia GR-1209-CORE and GR-1221-CORE reliability requirements and are RoHS compliant. Standard configurations include 1x4, 1x8, 1x16, 1x32 and 1x64, as well as custom 2xN configurations.

OZ Optics has the capability to connectorize the fibers of PLC splitters with all standard connectors, such as FC, SC, ST, LC etc., and finishes (Super PC, Ultra PC, Angled PC [APC] etc.). As a component integrator, OZ Optics can construct additional components directly onto the splitter fibers. Examples include tunable filters, variable attenuators, or collimators. By building these devices directly onto the coupler fibers, OZ Optics saves the customer the added cost and insertion loss of intermediate connectors and adapters, or the time and cost of fusion splicing.

Directly built devices are also the best way to maintain the highest possible polarization extinction ratios. In general OZ Optics uses polarization maintaining fibers based on the PANDA fiber structure when building polarization maintaining components and patchcords. However, OZ Optics can construct devices using other PM fiber structures. OZ Optics carries some alternative fiber types in stock, so please contact AMS Technologies for availability. If necessary, OZ Optics is also willing to use customer-supplied fibers to build devices.
