Optical Fiber Portfolio Expands

LASER COMPONENTS has extended its portfolio of Fibercore products to include single- mode fibers with wavelengths from 488 nm to 1625 nm. Many varieties are covered: for example, single-mode fibers with an ultra-low profile or large NA for improved bending resistance. Some types have a high germanium content and thus intrinsic photosensitivity for writing fiber Bragg gratings without further hydrogen passivation.


The range of possible applications is as versatile as the number of variations: Single-mode fibers are not only used in telecommunications, but also in laser diode pigtails and connectors, fiber Bragg gratings, sensor technology, telemetry, hydrophones, biomedical applications, spectroscopy, and space travel. For greater illumination and datasheets, get more fiber.
