Optical fibre switches

Laser Components has introduced a range of optical fibre switches designed for various laser measurement and microscopy applications. The switches are compact and reliable, and feature millisecond switching times over a long lifetime of 100-million cycles. Covering visible (400-690nm), near-IR (700-1,100nm) and IR (1,260-1,360nm, 1,480-1,630nm) spectral bands, as well as the polarisation maintaining band (1,310-1,550nm), these optical switches can be tailored to suit a wide range technologies, for both single mode or multi-mode fibres.

Applications include multi-channel laser sources and detectors, multiple sensor monitoring, laser scanning microscopy, SPAD arrays and micro-optics, and spectroscopy.
