What are OFP's Micro Lenses?

OFP's Micro Lens products offer the smallest and most cost effective collimating and/or focusing approach for single mode fibers. 

Seamlessly, a short 125 um component allows light from telecom/datacom fibers to be collimated, thus enabling low cost integration of most the traditional functions in the package. 

The technology also enables very low loss splicing of dissimilar fibers in optical devices. 

The solution provides a low cost replacement for legacy expanded beam technologies.

Key Features
  •  Typical 0.2 dB coupling loss per SM lens

  • Ability to adjust the distance between lenses and optical beam diameter

  • Collimating and focusing options.

  • Working distances and beam properties can be customized

  •  Fits into standard precision ferrules, V-grooves, and MT ferrules 

  • Lens tip can be cleaved with 0-15° angle
