Siskiyou's SM-CFTx fiber coupler

Siskiyou's SM-CFTx fiber coupler uses the optical lever arm effect, and a diffraction-limited asphere, to make single mode coupling easier than ever. The basis of this design is our vibration-resistant OTX.5 series multi-axis optics positioner, which can take a 3G jolt without moving. 100 thread per inch (TPI) adjustment screws are used to ensure accurate sub-micron translation. The Y axis knob uses a unique capture screw design to ensure no drift due to overloading in that axis. For added stability, each SM-CFTx motion axis is fitted with a non-influencing axis lock, maintaining alignment in challenging environments.

MedPac, a high power IR source with an aiming beam

Sheaumann's MedPac is great for medical and defense applications. It features two diodes, one consisting of a high power infrared source of 980 or 808nm, and the other a red aiming beam. The two diodes are individually addressable as well, allowing you to utilize both the aiming and high powered beam together or separately. The compact module can reach up to 7W of power out of a 980nm wavelength, 200μm aperture emitter. They are a fiber module with an internal thermistor, photodiode, and a detachable ST fiber connector. Please contact us for more information on this product.

Visible and Infrared Absorbers

Exciton's new absorbing dyes, or "absorbers," can provide selective or broadband light filtering throughout the visible and near infrared. Absorbers with relatively narrow absorption bands, such as those shown in the graph, filter out IR light with low visible color even at high optical densities. They can be used for selective laser wavelength filters and for security applications. Narrowband absorbers can be combined with visible light-absorbing dyes to create sharp cutoff, longpass filters. See our website for the latest information.
