Nufern's Educational Components
For many years Nufern & its diverse partners have enhanced high power Large Mode Area fiber laser and amplifier technology for the benefit of all manner of optical fiber laser and amplifier applications. The tools developed and used in our own labs provide scientists, engineers, and technicians apparatus to safely and easily obtain the best optical results, reuse valuable fibers, and easily adjust and adapt key performance parameters necessary to understand and develop products.
This set of tools is now made available as a kit or in parts to all experimenters & educators. Consisting of a patented inverted coil form set capable of low stress holding & easy loading 5, 10, or 15 m of fiber, a termination device for fibers emitting more than milliwatts, and key optical components which may be required to make lasers and amplifiers such as Bragg reflectors and cladding light strippers.
Fiber Termination DeviceA termination point heat sink and a heat shield, a fiber termination device conveniently holds the laser fiber, absorbing excess heat and allowing light emanating from a fiber to be aimed in a specific direction.
The patent pending NuBUG bench top bare laser fiber termination device is very easy to load. It has a large anvil designed to absorb rejected heat & a large face to shield fiber from back radiated energy.
Coil Form ToolA coil form tool allows easily repeatable winding of optical fiber for the creation of optically efficient fiber coils. This tool when loaded also becomes the heat sink and mode filter for LMA fibers.
The patent pending NuCOIL coil forms & loading tool kit use the inherent straightening force generated within a bent fiber to gently and very uniformly contact the heat rejecting active fiber to a specifically designed heat sink.
