The new fiber offerings target optical sensing and optical component fabrication and manufacturing applications. These products include:

  • 980/1550nm single mode fiber with high dimensional tolerances for device pigtailing and packaging

  • 980/1550nm fused coupler fiber with a special glass dopant profile to yield stable, repeatable optical performance during the fusion-tapering process

  • 830nm and 1550nm sensor grade polarization maintaining (PM) fibers with reduced 80um cladding diameter and an extended operating range coating system

  • 980nm and 1550nm telecom grade polarization maintaining (PM) fibers with standard 125um cladding diameter and matched mode parameters to standard telecom fiber

  • High non-linear (HNL) fiber ideally suited for discrete Raman gain elements and distributed Brillouin temperature sensing

"CiDRA's multi-disciplinary approach to optical technology development builds the knowledge and capabilities required to successfully utilize our core technology," said Paul Sanders, Vice President of Business Development.
