Extended portfolio of optical fibres
LASER COMPONENTS has extended its portfolio of Fibercore products to include single- mode fibres with wavelengths from 488nm to 1625nm. Many varieties are covered: for example, single-mode fibres 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 fibre Bragg gratings without further hydrogen passivation.
The range of possible applications is as versatile as the number of variations: Single-mode fibres are not only used in telecommunications, but also in laser diode pigtails and connectors, fibre Bragg gratings, sensor technology, telemetry, hydrophones, biomedical applications, spectroscopy, and space travel.
