A new generation of optical fibres
Optical fibres with a precisely shaped depression in the fibre end facet are the key enabling technological element in many different applications – from resonator-based absorption microscopy, sensing and manipulation of solid-state systems to quantum information processing. However, despite their wide potential for application, they are not commercially available. The EU-funded FINE project will build on past efforts to commercialise fibre-based microresonators to meet the high demand. By conducting an in-depth market study, the project will identify the relevant market segments and develop an intellectual property strategy to protect innovations in the manufacturing process. Improvements include new software-based solutions in addition to the new manufacturing processes and increased quality and quantity of the production.
