Fiber Shaping: Cleaving, Lensing, AR Coating

Cleaved Fiber Assemblies

OFP has pioneered high performance cleaving of fibers using computer controlled rapid CO2 laser abation technologies to cut the angles with high accuracy to form miniature 'optical' interfaces at the end of optical fibers. These enable high efficiency coupling while limiting back reflections.

OFP's technical expertise, leading packaging capabilities, and quality control set the company apart from its competitors. OFP offers a complete packaging solution for cleaved fiber assemblies with the addition of AR coating, metallization, hermetic ferrules, and connectors.

Lensed Fiber Assemblies

OFP's fiber lensing technology is able to cut Conical and Wedge lenses to multiple geometries directly on the fiber core. These enable customizable high efficiency coupling to many emitter and detector types.

OFP also offers traditional 'polished' lenses for specific application types. OFP offers all lensed assemblies with AR coating, metallization, hermetic ferrules, and connectors.
