Description and expertise of the organisation:
Advanced Fibreoptic Engineering are a medium sized manufacturing company who specialise in the alignment and pigtailing of TO can devices eg laser diodes, photodiode, bidirectional modules etc. We also offer subassembly module build and can provide a route from design through to manufacture and production of optical modules providing splicing, termination, fibre management and module layout. We have a wide range of test equipment. We have expertise in 3D CAD design. We can offer mechanical prototyping through our engineering workshop. We have our own dielectric coating facility and can offer thin film coatings for novel applications. We also offer extensive knowledge and experience of many optical components and can provide design consultancy.

Research interests / Project ideas
We would be interested in developing pigtailing for new active components in TO cans eg SLD or DFB in TO can complete with TE cooler would offer a good cost reduction compared to butterfly packaging.
Manufacture of new components which require a route to production

fibre pigtailing; module subassembly; optical testing
