Fiber Optical Coating
Service Detail from Cascade Optical Corp.
When choosing a coating vendor to deposit thin films on your carefully crafted fibers one needs to be very cautious and this is when experience counts. We have been coating Fibers with high laser power coatings since 1985. Our coatings are able to withstand LIDT > 10MW/cm² - CW & 10GW/cm² with pulsed rep rates @ 1kHz . Our X-Y-Z imaging inspection stations allow us to examine each and every fiber core down to 200X before and after coating. Delicate fibers need to be handled with special care by an experienced technician. A number of precautions need to be taken into account in order to yield a particulate free end-face with no induced stress to the fiber.
