EAST GRANBY, Conn. - August 28, 2002 - Nufern Adds Bend Insensitive 1550 nm to Its Line of Select Cut-Off Fibers
High Performance SMF28™ Compatible for Compact Packaging.
Nufern, the largest independent manufacturer of application-specific optical fiber, has added a bend insensitive 1550 nm fiber to its high performance select cut-off product family. This fiber is designed for use in small form factor active and passive components that require tight bend radii. Nufern's 1550B-HP provides 50 to 100 times lower bend loss than SMF28 and is ideal for bend insensitive packaging for compact C and L-band components, low NA planar waveguides, and metro applications. Nufern's 1550B-HP offers tight mechanical and optical tolerances, 200 kpsi proof test, and low splice loss to SMF28 fiber, for high yield component manufacturing.
“Nufern 1550B-HP allows our customers to miniaturize components while maintaining the same loss budget,” said Nufern scientist Upendra Manyam. “The combination of low bend loss and 200 kpsi proof test ensures superior performance and reliability in small form factor components. Nufern 1550B-HP meets our customers' requirements for tightly controlled optical and mechanical tolerances with better bend-performance than SMF28.”
