The optical amplifier is a major enabler in the development of worldwide fiber-optic networks. Erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA) and Raman amplifiers are two key optical amplification techniques.
The EDFA and Raman amplifiers are typically constructed by connecting specialty fibers (e.g. Er-doped fiber) and transmission fibers with other (passive/active) components for operation. Oplink provides a complete suite of fuse-based couplers and pump combiners, both thin-film-filter- (TFF-) and fused bionical tapered- (FBT-) based wideband WDMs, gain-flattening filters, crystal based optical isolators and integrated/hybrid products. Oplink leads the trend of miniaturization and integration with new mini series products for the next generation optical amplifier. Oplink's advantages include excellent performance specifications, one stop-complete design OEM and ODM capabilities, and low-cost vertical integration solutions for the optical gain block, controlled amplifier modules, systems and subsystem.
