  • Publication number: 20140233592
    Abstract: A tunable light includes a super continuum light source and a non-linear crystal, the super continuum light source comprising a pump source and a generator fiber, the generator fiber having an input end and an output end, and the super continuum light source and the non-linear crystal being arranged so that at least a part of output light emitted from the output end of the generator fiber is brought into interaction with the non-linear crystal under an angle of incidence ? relative to a surface of the non-linear crystal.

  • Patent number: 8678846
    Abstract: An electrical connector is provided for mating with a mating connector and includes a housing and a fulcrum latch mechanism having a latch arm extending from a latching end to an actuation end. The latch arm is configured to rotate about a fulcrum that is located along the length of the latch arm between the latching and actuation ends such that the latching end is configured to move between a latched position and an unlatched position. A connector position assurance (CPA) device is movably held by the housing such that the CPA device is configured to move relative to the housing between a mated position and an unmated position. The CPA device is movably held by the housing independently of the latch arm.

  • Patent number: 6567431
    Abstract: A long wavelength infrared laser system is disclosed where radiation from laser sources such as frequency-doubled Nd:YAG or a Cr:LiSAF is used to resonantly pump a gain medium consisting of a holmium-doped fluoride crystal having a high active ion concentration. The laser pump source has a pulse duration that may be short enough to gain switch a particular transition or long enough to allow end-pumping with high energy densities without damage. The gain material has an absorption approximately resonant with the pump source wavelength, and the dopant concentration is selected to maximize absorption strength for a given excitation. The output radiation from the laser system consists of one or more wavelengths including, in particular 3.9 nm but also other infrared wavelengths such as 1.4 &mgr;m, 2.9 &mgr;m and 3.4 &mgr;m., several of which may be produced simultaneousely from the same laser material through the mechanism of cascade transitions.

  • Patent number: 6536957
    Abstract: An optical transceiver assembly comprises a plurality of optical signal sources for providing downstream signals and a plurality of photodetectors for detecting upstream signals. An optical module is disposed between the optical signal sources and the photodetectors, where the optical module includes a surface transmissive to either one of the downstream and upstream signals, and substantially reflective to the other of the downstream and upstream signals, diffractive regions for deflecting the downstream signals into the optical fibers and the upstream signals into the optical module. The optical module also includes diffractive regions for deflecting the downstream signals from the optical signal sources into the optical module and the upstream signals into the photodetectors.
