Distributor Laser Components has announced that it has extended its portfolio of Fibercore products – to include single-mode fibres covering the wavelengths ranging from 488 nm to 1625 nm. Many varieties are now covered: for example, single-mode fibres with an ultra-low profile or large NA for improved bending resistance. Some of the new types have a high germanium content and thus intrinsic photo- sensitivity for writing fibre Bragg gratings without requiring further hydrogen passivation.
The distributor comments: “the range of new possible applications is now 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.”
Laser Components also offers a range of multi-mode fibres and special fibres, such as sapphire and hollow-core fibres. Polymer optical fibres (“POF”) and cables for applications with special requirements are also available.
Fibercore, based in Southampton, UK< manufactures a comprehensive range of speciality optical fibres including single-mode, photosensitive, multicore, polarisation maintaining, spun, doped, and multimode fibres; passive cladding pumped fibre and components, fibre Bragg grating, and complementary products.
