Fiber stretcher

/ Components

Our compact fiber stretchers offer the attractive feature to modify the optical path from 0 to 0,1ps.

The fiber is fixed on a multilayer piezoelectric actuator. The stretcher uses the piezoelectronic element to change the optical path and phase. IDIL Fibres Optiques stretchers are available in SM, PM or RC (reduced cladding) fiber types and offer a particularly fast and accurate technique.

Its compact packaging makes it suitable for various system applications. Typical applications include variable optical delay, fiber interferometry and sensor simulation.

  • Modulation of the optical path length
  • Compact packaging
  • SM, PM, RC (reduced cladding) fiber
  • Large choice of multiple termination
  • High speed
  • Can be driven with general purpose electronics
