MEMS Optical Switches


DiCon’s Tap/Detector is a hybrid component that combines the ultra flat spectral response of a thin film tap with a high sensitivity PIN photodiode for power monitoring applications. Hybrid Tap/Detectors minimize integration costs and module size by combining two functions in one temperature-stable package.


Tap/Detectors with Corning SMF-28 fiber are designed for power monitoring in protections switches, line cards, fiber amplifiers, and OADMs. Tap/Detectors with polarization maintaining fiber are designed for power monitoring of signal or pump laser sources that use PM fiber pigtails.



  • Ultra flat, broadband spectral response
  • Integrates tap and power monitoring functions
