StockerYale Dopes Fiber

SALEM, N.H. -- StockerYale, Inc., an independent leading designer and manufacturer of optical sub-component products, introduces its new line of Erbium-Doped Fiber at OFC 2001, March 19-21 in Anaheim, CA in booth 1933. Erbium-Doped Fiber is a critical sub-component that is used in the development and manufacture of Erbium-Doped Fiber Amplifiers, (EDFAs).

Due to the intrinsic properties of erbium, Erbium-Doped Fiber assists in the regeneration of the optical signal when it passes through the EDFA, a device that amplifies lightwave signals through optical networks. When configured within long-haul terrestrial or submarine telecommunications systems, EFDAs enable an optical signal to be sent greater distances with increased reliability. They are typically designed with pump laser modules, in-line optical isolators, wavelength division multiplexers, and Erbium-Doped Fiber.

StockerYale’s Erbium-Doped Fiber is specifically targeted at the wavelengths supported by the most widely used EDFAs and will include fiber that is optimized for use within the C and L band. The company anticipates shipping product in Q2/2001.
