Research Institution

A fiber-based fixed-array laser transmitter can be combined with a fiber-arrayed detector to create the next-generation NASA array LIDAR systems. High speed optical fiber multiplexers allow array LIDAR systems to efficiently share the same laser source. Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi) propose to develop an electrically switched, OptoCeramicREG based switch/multiplexer for 200micron core multimode fiber. OptoCeramicREG is the state-of-art electro optic material with high electro-optic coefficient, fast response speed and low loss. The innovative optical designs direct the laser into one of many possible output fibers. The main features of proposed high speed fiber multiplexer include ultra-high switching speed, low insertion loss, low power consumption, high power handling capability, compact packaging and scalability.
