Technologies and Products

Scottish based company Optoscribe has announced the addition of an ultra-low crosstalk option to its 3D Optofan series of multicore fibre fanouts. By carefully controlling the 3D waveguide layout inside the component, stray light is minimised resulting in a reduced crosstalk within the fanout of <-75 dB.  The product was developed as part of the EC-Funded INSPACE project that focuses on the development of complete spatial-spectral flexible optical networking solutions.

Designed to revolutionise optical telecommunications, the 3D Optofan series enables the transmission of high data rates over short and long haul distances. Connecting to singlemode and multicore Fibres has never been simpler.

The 3D Optofan offers a broad flat spectral response with high throughput and minimal insertion losses. Robust packaging and product flexibility enables simple integration across a range of application scenarios.

Furthermore, the flexibility of Optoscribe’s manufacturing process allows users to customise their layout over a wide variety of multicore fibres.

Formed as a spin-out from the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot Watt University, Optoscribe is built on a strong foundation of knowledge and expertise in the application of photonic technologies including 3D waveguide solutions.

In June 2015 Optoscribe received the BSI accreditation for ISO 9001:2008 certification. The ISO standard has a number of strict requirements to ensure that products of the highest quality and standard are supplied. Receiving the accreditation and certification is testament to Optoscribe’s on-going commitment to supply high performance, best in class products to its customers.
