NORIA function module

The NORIA function module

Overview

The NORIA is the world’s first commercially available lithography system for fabricating Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs). Fast and easy to use, it offers end-users flexibility in writing a large variety of grating types. A Deep Ultra Violet laser (Coherent Excistar XS 500Hz—ArF) and a phase mask (Ibsen Photonics) are used to transfer a periodic pattern into the core of a photosensitive optical fiber.

The NORIA tool holds a number of different masks in a revolver like holder, each mask having a different pattern periodicity. This flexibility allows the end-user to manufacture FBGs from predefined recipes in an automated fashion. In addition, multiple FBGs in an array can be written along the fiber at any desired position using the NORIA tools accurate positioning stage.

FBG details

Length

10 mm

Standard feature. Option for smaller FBG lengths down to 1 mm

Full Width Half Maximum (FWHM)

<150 pm

Standard feature, part of predefined recipes

Side Lobe Suppression Ratio (SLSR)

>15 dB

Standard feature, part of predefined recipes

Default reflection coefficient

>50 %

Standard feature, part of predefined recipes

Central wavelength repeatability

± 50 pm

Central wavelength accuracy is sub- ject to variations in fiber NA from batch to batch

Illumination profile

Gaussian / Tophat

Default Gaussian or Tophat profile. Option to define other profiles

Fiber Outer Diameter (excl. coating)

125 µm

Standard feature, option to accom- modate smaller and larger OD fibers e.g. 400, 80, 60, 50 and 40 µm

Fiber coating

Acrylate / Polyimide

The fiber needs to be window stripped over a minimum of 20 mm at the desired FBG location.

System details

Cycle time

<30 s

Cycle time defined as the total amount of time required to write a single highly reflective FBG. Includes fiber positioning, automatic mask se- lection, exposure and undocking of the fiber.

Available phase mask slots

16

Newly purchased phase masks can easily be inserted manually

Phase masks included

4

By default 4 high quality Ibsen phase- mask are included in the NORIA

Default recipes

4

By default the NORIA has 4 prede- fined recipes allowing the end-user to manufacture 4 different FBGs in the C-band with approximately 5 nm wavelength separation

User friendly software interface

 

The software includes a recipe editor allowing the end-user to define FBG recipes.
