EAST GRANBY, CT –February 10, 2015 – Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers and amplifiers, and fiber optic gyro coils, announced today it has expanded its line of NuGYRO fibers designed for fiber optic gyroscopes by developing higher performance versions of its already successful gyroscope products.
Nufern’s high performance (HP) gyroscope fibers are optimized for exceptional spliceability and ease of handling. They feature lower attenuation and tighter coating diameter tolerance for improved SNR and coil winding accuracy. These fibers are exclusively available with Nufern’s proprietary NuCOATLTg coating designed for improved crosstalk performance over a wide temperature range from -60 oC to 105 oC. HP fibers are available for 850nm, 1300nm and 1550nm operation, with two different coating diameters – 135 mm and 170 mm.
Dr. Mansoor Alam, Director of Sensor Business said, “The addition of higher performance NuGYRO fibers improve the coil winding accuracy and minimize overall loss through lower attenuation and improved spliceability. These HP fibers with tighter tolerances on key parameters and well-engineered NuCOATLTg coating enable manufacturing of precision coils for higher performance fiber optic gyroscopes.”
Nufern fibers are manufactured to exceptionally tight mechanical and optical tolerances. The resulting uniformity and efficiency helps to ensure high yield manufacturing of fiber optic devices. All Nufern fibers are produced under an ISO 9001:2008 certified quality management system.
