Optical bundle / Bundles & Fiber assemblies

IDIL Fibres Optiques proposes a wide range of tailor-made optical bundles, namely assemblies of multiple optical fibers.

Select your configuration

  • Straight
  • Fan-Out
  • Simple Furcation
  • Complex Furcation

Straight

Multiple optical fibers are held together at one end (the input termination). The same fibers are found at the other end (the output termination). Use our NEW configurator tool to customize your straight optical bundle: fiber types, materials and diameters, connectors types, customized ferrules, wavelength, numerical apertures, etc.

Fan-Out

Multiple optical fibers are held together at one end (the common termination). All fibers are then divided into different legs at the other end. A single fiber is placed in each output leg. Use our NEW configurator tool to customize your fan-out optical bundle: fiber types, materials and diameters, connectors types, customized ferrules, wavelength, numerical apertures, etc.

Simple Furcation

Multiple optical fibers are held together at one end (the common termination). Fibers are then furcated into different legs at the other end. One or multiple fibers can be connectorized in each leg following your specifications. Use our NEW configurator tool to customize your simple furcation optical bundle: fiber types, materials and diameters, connectors types, customized ferrules, wavelength, numerical apertures, etc.

Complex Furcation

IDIL designs complex multi-legs optical bundles. To make it easy, use our online configurator to send us your drawing!

    Summary

    Optical bundle summary

    IDIL Fibres Optiques provides custom fiber optic bundles in accordance with customer’s requirements: fiber types, materials and diameters, quantities (from small batch to several hundred), connectors types, customized ferrules, wavelength, numerical apertures, etc.

    Our engineering flexibility also concerns mechanics and assembling. Actually, Fibers assembling process can be realized without glue which enables to resist a very high power laser (> 1 watt). Otherwise, specific lenses can be put in front of such assemblies.

    IDIL Fibres Optiques also produces multi-branch assemblies where fibers are held together on the one end and divided into several branches on the other hand. Positioning of each optical fiber within branches can be precisely determined and implemented in order to meet the required distribution at the end.

     


    Bundle family

    Straight bundles

    Straight bundles include one input and output. However, they could be not as basic at they seem. Indeed in this configuration, bundles can take a large number of geometries with linear, hexagonal, round, array disposal etc. We can address each fiber independent of I/O disposal. Main applications would be illumination and excitation bundles, endoscopy, imaging systems, optical power transportation or mere offset systems for spectroscopy signal collection. Regarding the number of fiber and your application we will set an optical connector, a capillary or a more complex mechanical device.

    Fan-out bundles

    Fan-out bundles have to be seen like a common junction split from two to numerous legs. Each leg will contain one fiber and is customizable. Common junction is also of course designed regarding your specification. On your side, the use of this kind of bundle is multiple: gathering light sources for illumination or laser pumping, multiple coupled detectors, sample cartography

    Simple and complex furcation bundles

    The main difference between Fan-Out and Furcation bundles resides in the fact that you can set as many fiber as you want in each leg. This makes the difference for reflection, fluorescence, backscattering or Raman measurements where you need to illuminate and collect independently. For this purpose we can add filters, lenses or other terminations.

    How it works

    A fiber bundle is the assembly of multiple optical fibers. The fibers of the bundle are usually held together at one end, and may be separated into multiple branches at the other end. Fiber bundles provide significantly more light throughout compared to a single optical fiber in a patchcord. They also offer greater physical flexibility and high precision.
