FIBERTech RoMack (Williamsburg, VA), A LEONI Fiber Optics business unit, now
offers a complete product portfolio of maximum performance and long-term
stability Planar Lightwave Circuits (PLC) including single mode 1 x N and 2 x
N broadband splitters with up to 64 channels, designed as monolithic
components for the telecom wavelength range. These components are used
primarily in passive optical distribution networks in the subscriber loop of
the telecommunication networks (FTTH). Other applications of FIBERTech RoMack
splitters are measuring systems, laser systems, and special PLCs with optical
functions such as couplers, interferometers or pitch converter systems for
measurement, sensor technology systems or optical signal processing. To
expedite delivery of non-standard splitters, FIBERTech RoMack has designed a
construction “kit” that allows them to manufacture an extensive functional
variety of chips such as customized asymmetric or monolithic multiple
