OZ Optics’ VGA series of V-Groove array assemblies assists in developing next generation photonic devices. The arrays are manufactured using precision silicon wafer V-Groove technology or Pyrex V-Groove in conjunction with a Pyrex lid, enabling sub-micron alignment accuracy with UV cure attachment capabilities.

VGA series V-Groove array assemblies are available with single mode (SM), multi mode (MM) or PANDAtype polarization maintaining (PM) fibers. Customization can even include different types of fibers assembled into a single array.

In general, OZ Optics uses polarization maintaining fibers based on the PANDA fiber structure when building polarization maintaining components and patch cords. However OZ Optics can construct devices using other PM fiber structures. OZ Optics also carries some alternative fiber types in stock, please contact AMS Technologies for availability. If necessary, OZ Optics is willing to use customer supplied fibers to build devices.

Standard PANDA style PM arrays are manufactured with the polarization axis (stress rods) aligned vertical to the V-Groove base within 3°. High grade assemblies with one to eight channels can be provided with the stress rods aligned to 1°. Arrays can also be provided with the fibers aligned parallel to the base, alternating axes or at custom angles. When supplied with a breakout and connectors, the alignment of the connector is also to the slow axis, within 3° for standard connectors or available to within 1.5° for high grade connectors.

V-Groove array assemblies can be manufactured with a hermetic feedthrough attached. This enables the development of multichannel photonic devices capable of meeting Telcordia requirements. Fiber breakouts can also be added, to convert ribbonized fibers into separated fibers, capable of being connectorized.
