TeraXion, a leading supplier of optoelectronic components and modules for the telecom, fiber lasers and optical sensing markets, announces the commercial introduction of femtosecond laser Fiber Bragg Gratings writing capabilities.

High-performance femtosecond laser sources, through non-linear interaction of ultrafast intense laser pulses with materials, make possible the inscription of Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) in a variety of glasses for different wavelength range applications.

TeraXion has demonstrated through-coating writing of FBG using femtosecond laser writing technique in acrylate and polyimide coated optical fibers. With the addition of this latest capability, TeraXion will develop new products such as very high-power fiber laser reflectors and optical sensors for very harsh environments. These new products could be realized in new glass materials such as pure silica and chalcogenide (2 to 5 um) optical fibers or planar waveguides.

"This addition to our technology portfolio will allow us to extend our product offering for the high-power fiber laser and fiber-optic sensing markets, thus solidifying our leadership position as a components and modules vendor for these applications" said Ghislain Lafrance, Vice-President Business Development.

TeraXion currently supplies prototypes for customers' evaluation.
