Mode scrambler option for laser hot spot elimination from Fiberguide

A new mode scrambler option for its line of high power laser delivery assemblies by Fiberguide Industries (Stirling, NJ) protects the fiber optic conduit by conducting heat away from the fiber end. Incorporated into the proximal end of the laser assembly, the mode scrambler allows the laser beam a homogeneous exit.

The assembly option's custom designed high-power SMA (SubMiniature version A) connector uses air gap technology to eliminate all energy absorbing materials at the fiber end. The cantilevered fiber end can accept very high power levels that would normally destroy traditional fiber termination. A uniquely designed heat sink is thermally and mechanically connected to the assembly to effectively conduct generated heat away from fiber.

Fiberguide offers the option on its standard silica and hard clad fibers, in standard core diameters from 200 to 1500um with numerical apertures ranging from 0.12, 0.22 (standard), 0.26 and 0.39 (standard). For high power levels, a high conductivity copper ferrule is used for the nose of the connector allowing for greater heat dissipation. All systems are designed around customers' exacting requirements and specifications.

Fiberguide Industries is FDA registered as a Contract Manufacturer and Custom Device Manufacturer.
