Optoscribe – 3D waveguide technology for optical communications.

The hurdles often associated with the adoption of new technologies are overcome by using our flexible, high performance waveguides. We provide innovative products that are set to revolutionise the optical communications network and help shape the future.

Our accurate 3D embedded waveguides allow the fabrication of devices that are impossible to produce using solely planar technologies, enabling new possibilities and integration scenarios.

Eight-channel multicore fibre fanout device

Optoscribe has launched a new eight-channel multicore fibre fanout device. The 3D Optofan Series offers a standard eight-core configuration that can be easily customised to suit Multicore fibre geometry. This enables users to increase the amount of data that can be transferred across an optical fibre, thereby reducing cabling costs and dimensions while maximising data bandwidth, the company says.
