Mobius Photonics Develops "Meight" Optical Fiber Connector

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - July 6, 2010) -  Mobius Photonics, an innovative producer of short pulsed fiber laser sources (IR, green, and UV laser), has developed the "Meight" connector -- a detachable optical fiber connector designed for precision power applications such as pump light delivery and fiber coupling in commercial and industrial lasers. Meight connectors accommodate up to a few hundred watts of power via multimode fibers with core diameters from 50 microns to 1 mm.

"Mobius has developed the Meight connector with the goal of establishing a new standard for optical fiber connecting," said Red Byer, Mobius vice president of operations. "We've engineered a design that combines high power delivery with simple, repeatable insertion and extraction capabilities, and is compatible with a sealed bulkhead laser design. Through licensing we plan to introduce Meight connectors to the market, ultimately giving laser makers a new option in performance from an optical power connector."

Meight connectors are keyed for consistent, repeatable coupling. A large-thread hex nut guides and fastens the connector in place to ensure a secure, reliable mechanical connection. Meight connectors can be used to fiber couple through a sealed bulkhead and are capable of being de-coupled without breaking the bulkhead seal. Bulkhead interfaces are available to connect Meight to Meight, Meight to SMA, as well as launch between Meight and free space.
