LONG BEACH, Calif. - May 19, 2002 - Nufern Expands Metalized Optical Fiber Offerings with Polarization Maintaining Fibertails and Enhanced Fiber Laser Module Capabilities Nufern, an independent provider of application-specific optical fiber, has expanded its line of metalized optical fibers with the addition of polarization maintaining (PM) fibertails and enhanced fiber laser module capabilities.
Available in Nufern PM14XX-HP, Nufern PM1550-HP, or customer supplied PM fibers, Nufern PM Fibertails are designed for use in components such as, lithium niobate modulators, laser diodes, and diode stabilizers. Nufern's proprietary electroless nickel and gold fiber plating process helps preserve the birefringence of the PM fiber that results in optimum performance (minimum crosstalk: <-36 dB, typical crosstalk: <-43 dB).
Nufern fiber laser module capabilities for metalized optical fibers include; angle, wedge, and cone, end-shaping; front and rear ferruling; anti-reflective coatings; SC and FC standard connectors and PC, UPC, APC polishes. Nufern fiber laser modules are available stand-alone or in combination for more complex units.
"The statistical process controls we have in place allow us to provide better performing products throughout from fiber draw, to plating, to fiber laser module, said Nufern Vice President of Operations, Dr. Kanishka Tankala. Our metalized fibers represent the kind of highly-engineered, repeatable, tight specification, application-specific products our customers require.
Nufern utilizes a class 1000 clean room for fibertail production. As with all Nufern products, Nufern Fibertails provide high lot-to-lot uniformity and are tested to Telcordia standards.
Nufern is the largest independent manufacturer of highly engineered, application-specific optical fiber (ASOF) for components and systems serving the telecommunications, industrial, medical, and aerospace industries. With manufacturing facilities located at its headquarters in East Granby, Connecticut, USA, Nufern is able to engineer, make, support, and deliver large volumes of commercial-grade ASOF to customers around the world. Nufern products include polarization maintaining fiber, planar waveguide fiber, metalized fibertails, select cut-off single-mode fiber, photosensitive fiber, ultra-high numerical aperture fiber, and specialty-coated fibers.
