fiber-coupling Core Technology
Optical Fiber Systems will help you take your idea from a concept design to full production. We have expertise in all fields of engineering including optical design (SOLSTIS, OSLO, MathCAD), mechanical design (AutoCAD), electronic design (OrCAD) and thermal analysis (MathCAD). We have experience with micro-optics (both refractive and diffractive), beam propagation analysis, laser resonator design, coupled cavities analysis.

Our core technology is the coupling of laser diodes into optical fibers. We have developed a unique and proprietary technology to efficiently couple laser diodes into optical fibers. We have also developed proprietary circuitry to control the operation of laser diodes including a programmable microprocessor controller and an automatic temperature compensation circuit to maintain the emission wavelength of a diode constant at any power level.

We have also developed proprietary fiberoptics technologies such as the lensing of fiber tips and fusion-splicing of fiber-collimator lens directly onto the end of optical fibers. This eliminates optical interfaces and enables very high power capability.

Self Fourier Cavity Advanced Technology Multi-Core Fiber
We have been working with Corcoran Engineering Inc (CEI) on the development of a new technologies to generate scalable laser power, funded in part by the U.S. Government. We are also working with other companies including Raytheon, Nufern, nLight and DILAS. One of the key technologies is a revolutionary technique that allows coherently combining an unlimited number of high power laser beams into a single diffraction-limited beam.

The technology is protected by one key patent (US Patent No. 6,714,581) held by CEI and other pending applications. Several articles describing this technology have been published in reviewed journals and presented at international conferences. It allows building laser system with unlimited output power simply by combining as many laser elements as needed while preserving a diffraction-limited beam quality, that is a beam quality that allows propagating the beam through very long distances with minimum spread.

This technology has great potential for applications such as thick metal welding and cutting (such as used in ship-building), rock drilling (remote mining, building repairs), spaceship propulsion, space communication and others.
