Optical Fiber Systems Inc

Our Technology: solutions for laser diodes and fiberoptics.

Optical Fiber Systems will help you turn your idea into a product. We will work with you to define your specific requirements and desired parameters and generate a design concept.
From this, we will generate a complete design for your review, and fabricate a prototype for evaluation and validation.

We have expertise in all fields of engineering including optical design (SOLSTIS, OSLO, Code V, MathCAD), mechanical design (AutoCAD), electronic design (OrCAD, QCAD) 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.

We have been working with Corcoran Engineering Inc (CEI) on the development of new technologies to generate scalable laser power, funded in part by the U.S. Government. We are also working with other companies including Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Nufern, nLight and DILAS. One key technology is a revolutionary and patented technique that allows coherently combining an unlimited number of high power laser beams into a single diffraction-limited beam without the need of additional active elements.

Several articles describing this technology have been published in reviewed journals and presented at international conferences. It allows building laser systems 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 (or focusing it into the tightest spot possible).
