When connecting a multi-furcated fiber to a spectrometer or light source, light entering/exiting each of the fiber legs may or may not be uniform, so a fiber-optic homogenizer can be used to mix the signals to provide more uniform signal.
The compact MMA-UV/VIS-SMA fiber-optic homogenizer is made of anodized aluminum and has female SMA-905 connectors on both ends. Internally, a highly transmissive Suprasil-Rod with a diameter of 1 or 3 mm transmits the light from one end to the other (from bundle to single fiber) and perfectly mixes the modes.
The fiber-optic homogenizer can also be used as a mode stripper.
