EAST GRANBY, CT - January 25, 2011 - Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers & amplifiers and fiber optic gyro coils announced today it is expanding its range of rare earth doped double-clad fibers in response to growing customer demand for improved high power fibers.
The latest Generation VIII series of Yb-doped LMA fibers is expanded to include the 10/130, 30/400 and 30/250-Hi fibers available in both PM and non-PM versions, and utilizing the newest glass composition, resulting from extensive long termengineering efforts. This latest generation of Yb-doped LMA fibers maintains the same key optical specifications as previous LMA fibers, but also incorporates new glass technology for high efficiency and robust fiber laser/amplifier operation in the most demanding of industrial applications.
Nick Jacobson, Director of Process Engineering reports "We are pleased to continue the expansion of this fiber product line and are committed to the concurrent release of the appropriate ancillary fibers, as our customers have grown to expect. It is critical that our customers retain the one stop shop benefit of doing business for fiber lasers at Nufern".
All of Nufern's fibers are manufactured to exceptionally tight mechanical and optical tolerances. The resulting uniformity and efficiency helps to ensure high yield when the fiber is used in device manufacturing. All Nufern fibers are produced under an ISO 9001:2008 certified quality management system.
