Fiber Arrays

For its packaging and assembly business where PHIX needs fiber arrays to be assembled to Photoninc Integrated Circuits for its customers a high demand  occured which required the scale up of the production of Polarisation Maintaining Fiber arrays as well as the capability to produce flexible fiber configurations for usage in the visible wavelength range. Therefore PHIX has been partnering with Germain based companies Aixemtec and Fraunhofer IPT to get a dedicated flexible manufacturing machine that assembles these fiber arrays in different configurations.

PHIX Photonics Assembly offers a broad range of V-Groove Fiber Arrays for Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) connections which are used in telecommunication networks, medical equipment, space and military applications as well as test and measurement equipment. With our extensive experience in connecting Fiber Arrays to PICs for various platforms like Silicon Nitride, Silicon and Indium Phosphide we are your partner in selection and supply of high-quality V-Groove Fiber Arrays.
