Diamond's modular approach offers maximum flexibility for optimizing individual connections and global system performance along an optical link. Depending on local conditions and constraints, different interface solutions may be better suited:
- Interface position: Fiber-to-fiber connection, coupling between fiber and (from or to) free-space.
- Fiber type: Standard single-mode (SM), multimode (MM) fibers, or other specialty fibers (polarization-maintaining, low-NA, double-clad, etc.).
- Power level: Optical and thermal power management.
- Operating wavelength: Optimization of transmission efficiency.
At Diamond, we recognize the importance of tailoring our solutions to specific requirements. To cater to diverse laser applications, we have developed various technologies, including:
- PS (Power Solution) and PS+ up to 16 Watts in Singlemode fibers
- PSi (Power Solution Injection)
- PSf (Power Solution for free-space)
