WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF OPTICAL MEMS
Sercalo Microtechnology is a leading supplier for MEMS and MOEMS (Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical System) components since 1999. Main products are its leading Fiber Optic Switches, Attenuators and Tunable Filters. Sercalo proposes as well MEMS mirrors used e.g. in scientific instrumentation or for future applications as LIDARs (light detection and ranging) for autonomous vehicles or intersatellite communication.
Sercalo's skills span the entire process of manufacture, from the design of the MEMS chip to its fabrication and assembly.
Sercalo’s optical MEMS switches are proposed in single mode, multimode or PM fibers, at wavelengths from 600nm up to 1600nm, latching or non-latching.
Their extremely high reliability matches with demanding applications in Telecom, Datacom, Sensor Networks, Instruments, Test and Measurement.
Sercalo produces MEMS Micromirrors. Electrostatic driven MEMS mirrors are conceived for applications with high pointing stability requirements. Magnetic MEMS micro-mirrors offer large areas and suit at best applications requiring DC pointing as well as dynamic scanning. What’s your application?
Sercalo proposes a "CUSTOM SERVICE" for production of MEMS MICROMIRRORS.
Sercalo proposes tunable filters for 100GHz and 50GHz ITU grid for reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers or spectroscopic applications. Available bands are O, C and L bands.
The miniature package (1.5 cm3) withstands rugged environments.
FIBER OPTICAL ACCELEROMETER
Sercalo manufactures fiber optical accelerometers in which the displacement of a MEMS seismic mass is converted into an optical signal, proportional to the acceleration, and transferred by an optical fiber to the remote electronics.
The sensor head is packaged either in stainless steel or ceramic material (MACOR) housing. The sensor is conceived for harsh environment.
Sercalo's VOA (Variable Optical Attenuators) is based on an electrostatic MEMS mirror. Both normally open (bright) type and high attenuation (dark) types are available.
Long term stability and excellent reliability are assured by using laser welding techniques for the component assembly.
ADVANTAGES OF SERCALO’S TECHNOLOGY
Sercalo’s products are leader in the market of Fiber Optical Components thanks to their:
- Wide wavelength range covering the full range of the used fibers
- Solid state like repeatability
- Resistance to wear
