Fiber Optic components

Components using electrode-filled fibers are one particular expertise of RISE Acreo. Thermal poling makes the fiber electrooptic, allowing fast, all-fiber, phase modulation.

Another component technology using similar fiber, provides extremely fast polarization control, that can be extended to e.g. pulse control functions such as q-switching or pulse-picking in lasers. 

Acreo have the equipment and know-how to fusion splice complex combinations of different fibers, with holes and electrodes, and have thus the ability to make advanced components where light, electricity and chemical substances can interact.

Fiber Bragg gratings are very widely used for filtering, reflectors and wavelength locking. Acreo has expertise in fiber Bragg gratings (FBG), including high temperature gratings (CCGs), and long period gratings.
