Products, Features and Capabilities

Multiport Laser Delivery and Distribution Devices
Multiple Outputs from a Single Source

With its own innovative and leading edge technologies, Fibersense fabricates multiport laser distribution devices that deliver an input signal from a single source/fiber simultaneously to many outputs. In contrast with conventional (and generally inefficient) fiber bundles and arrays, these advanced, entirely integrated devices enjoy low loss, and allow for excellent and repeatable power distribution, with a high degree of uniformity.

The multiple delivery outputs provide a versatile and many-faceted approach to the treatment or target site, since the individual outputs can be positioned exactly as required, to maximum advantage and effect. This approach greatly reduces the duration of tests and procedures since multiple sites, targets or samples can be treated at the same time. In investigational medical procedures this also translates to a considerable reduction in the stress and discomfort of the subject. The multiple outputs also constitute a much more economic use of the laser source, since wear and tear on the source is reduced and its effective working life is prolonged.

Fibersense can fabricate these devices with virtually any fiber type, fiber diameter and wavelength compatibility, with Numerical Apertures and power -handling capabilities to meet all biophotonic laser delivery requirements. A wide variety of termination, packaging and custom design options are offered.

Special Options:

Fibersense's Multiport Devices can be supplied with the following custom options:

Delivery outputs in accurate multiple splitting ratios
(e.g. 60%/20%/20%; 90%/10% 1%)

Dual inputs, "Aiming Beam" Option
The dual input feature provides a second or subsidiary input that can be utilized to deliver a useful marking or guiding beam while the outputs are being positioned on the treatment/target or sample site. When the optimum positions are located, the outputs remain in place, undisturbed, while the aiming-beam input is disconnected. The main power output is then engaged to carry laser power at the full treatment or procedural strength.

Asymmetrical Option
i.e. Input and Outputs of differing fiber sizes.

Custom Fiber Option
Fibersense will supply devices with specialized fiber and customer-supplied fiber.

" Detachable Delivery Lead Option
Box-enclosed and Rack-mount units can be supplied with box-mounted connector receptacles for use with detachable/disposable fibers.
