Linden Photonics Inc. was founded in 2002 by Dr. Amaresh Mahapatra and Robert Mansfield. Since its inception, Linden’s design specialists have developed a range of miniature, high strength optical fiber cables, cable coatings and specialized optoelectronic packaging for environments where high strength and compact size are required.
On the forefront of polymeric design Linden has worked with the Navy, it’s prime contractors and many local manufacturing and plastics experts to develop a proprietary, low cost manufacturing process for the production of high strength, small diameter cables with single or multiple optical fibers. We offer a range of standard cable products and custom design options to fit the specific needs of our customers.
Most high strength cables require the addition of longitudinal strength members such as Kevlar. By using LCP buffer over any fiber or wire a maximum alignment of polymer chains yields a high tensile strength. Linden has developed proprietary processes such that thin, extruded strands of LCP have a tensile modulus comparable to Kevlar.
