Speciality Single Mode Fibers

Fibercore’s Specialty Singlemode Optical Fibers have been designed to perform in a wide range of challenging applications. Already offering wavelengths between 488 nm and 1550 nm, the recent development of the SM-SC pure silica core fibers extends this range well into the UV, with minimal photodarkening when compared with conventional germanosilicate cored fibers. The SM1500 series fibers are also offered with a range of numerical apertures from 0.20 to 0.30. The high NA of these fibers reduces the bend-induced loss to levels far below standard telecommunication fibers allowing them to be used in diameters of 10mm or smaller. The high Germania content of these fibers also considerably enhances their photosensitivity, making them ideally suited to the fabrication of certain types of fiber bragg gratings.
