    AFR Coherent Modulator 400/600Gb/s PM-QMZ is a high electro-optic bandwidth polarization multiplexed quad parallel Mach-Zehnder (PM-QMZ) that explicitly designed to enable 400GE and beyond speeds on a single wavelength or carrier. It can be applied to the transmission of ultra-high speed and ultra-distance coherent communication.

    20/40 GHz Intensity Modulator (AM20, AM40)

    AFR Broadband Analog Intensity Modulators combine high linearity with low driving voltage and small footprint, covering all the frequency range from 20 GHz to beyond 40  GHz (AM20: 20-30 GHz; AM40: > 30 GHz). The increasing demand to shift the transmission frequency in microwave fiber optic links towards higher frequency finds in AFR analog modulators the most advanced and suitable answer. The experience and know-how of AFR engineers is available to customize our products to the customer’s specific requirements.

    High Bandwidth Zero-Chirp Modulator (F10)

    AFR High Bandwidth Zero-Chirp modulators are based on the Mach-Zehner Interferometer (MZI) architecture. The F10-0 is a zero-chirped, x-cut single drive modulator designed for high bit rate advanced metro to long haul communication systems that requires the superior performance of x-cut lithium niobite.

    You Imagine, We Design

    In addition to LiNbO3 Modulator Products, AFR also showcased PM & high power products and FTA products. As an excellent one-stop fiber assembly service provider, AFR supports customization based on customer’s need.

    With 20 years of industrial experience of PM & high power products, AFR has made full use of its technological advantages in the optical laser field and further extended its achievements into the optical communication field. AFR’s products for communication can reach the average power of 20W. AFR's PM components offer excellent optical performance with high extinction ratio and low insertion loss. AFR also provides one-stop fiber assembly services, including fiber metallization, fiber feedthrough, lensed fiber, and more. AFR’s sputtering technology also takes the lead in the industry.

    In the future, AFR will continue to invest in optical communication field, producing diversed and highly competitive products, providing customers with qualified and reliable services.

    May 4, 2020--- The wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Fiber Resources in Italy Milan AFR (AFRML) is fully resumed to work after several months of suspension. As the spread of the epidemic is gradually slowing down in Italy, AFRML is planning to restart production with strict epidemic control.

    To prevent the spread of COVID -19, AFRML has set up a special committee based on the recommendation of official guidelines. The goal of the committee is to strictly monitor the health safety during the restart process and to fulfill the requirement of any relevant parties. The company strictly complies with the epidemic prevention regulation created by the local government and will take every possible measurement to ensure employees health safety as well as public sanitation.

    AFRML owns a LiNbO3 series high-speed modulator and analog modulator product line located in San Donato, Italy. It was acquired by AFR in the form of cash from Lumentum at the end of 2019. The product line, which started at Pirelli Research Laboratory near Milan, has a strong technical and production team and has been dedicated to the research and development of the most advanced optical modulator products, with broad market opportunities in communications and sensing industry. Lithium niobate modulator is widely used in modern optical communication system and is the core component to realize electro-optical conversion. With the introduction of "new infrastructure" 5G infrastructure, the demand for such products is increasing.

    With fully resumption of production, the company will restore normal capacity of the lithium niobate modulator product line, solving the current supply shortage.
