David Robson examines how the fibre optics market has evolved to encompass much more than just the telecommunications industry


Fujikura Europe has launched a new fusion splicer to support the increasing use of fibre optics in industrial applications. The new LDF series of products is capable of splicing all types of fibre currently available.

2CF fibres

iXFiber, the French manufacturer of specialty fibres and fibre optic components, has introduced a family of Yb double clad '2CF' fibres, free of photo darkening effects, designed for laser devices operating at 1µm.

MEMS component manufacturer

As the European distributor for Sercalo Microtechnology, a European MEMS component manufacturer, AMS Technologies has released Sercalo's polarisation-maintaining MEMS switches.

AFE fibre optic components

Pacer has launched the AFE range of fibre optic components and related services. The components are fully RoHS compliant and manufactured in a robust ISO9001:2000 quality certified production facility.


The MPM-2000 fibre optic multiplexer from Mikropack is a high-precision instrument that can optically couple a light source to either eight or 16 outputs in sequential order.


Scitec Instruments has introduced an E/O to O/E converter pair that enables precise transmission of one analogue plus four digital channels of information over fibre optic links up to 10km.

XSR Extreme

XSR Xtreme optical fibre assemblies for spectroscopy from Ocean Optics provide enhanced UV transmission (up to 180nm), and are resistant to UV degradation. They are ideal for deep-UV applications.

Slip rings

Schleifring has developed a range of slip rings for use in computed tomography systems. The development of this optical slip ring enables the transmission range to be extended as far as 10GBit/s and upwards.

Custom Fibre Assemblies

Custom fibre assemblies, from Laser Components, have extended the range of standard assemblies for telecommunications, with core sizes from 50µm diameter, and special cables for sensor and medical technologies.
