Boston Applied Technologies, Incorporated
Introduces Fused PM Fiber Products

Woburn, MA, December 31, 2009 -- Boston Applied Technologies, Incorporated (BATi), a world leader in photonic devices, announces the general availability of fused polarization-maintaining fiber (PM) couplers and polarization-maintaining (PM) WDM.

BATi's fused PM fiber components are based on a proprietary fusion and packaging process that allows the fused PM fiber products have very low insertion loss and high power handling. This improved attribute also makes the related PM fiber devices have low temperature dependence, wide operation wavelength, high-reliability, and avoids the coupling ratio fluctuation due to the different polarization extinction ratio for launching source.

Using this special process, different PM fiber porduct families such as 1x2 (2x2) PM couplers, 1x3 (3x3) PM couplers, 1x4 (2x4) PM couplers, and 1x2 (2x2) PM WDMs, covering all of different operating wavelengths, have been developed. These devices will be greatly used in optical test instrument, fiber optic sensors, fiber amplifiers and fiber lasers.

About BATi
Boston Applied Technologies, Incorporated (BATi) was formed in 2002 by the key management and technical team formerly with Corning Applied Technologies, a subsidiary of Corning Incorporated. With many years of development effort and a group of industry pioneers, BATi has established a unique leading position in designing, manufacturing and marketing a variety of light and polarization management components for the telecommunications and instrumentation markets.
