EAST GRANBY, CT - April 13, 2004 - Nufern, the largest independent manufacturer of fiber intensive fiber laser modules and specialty optical fibers, introduces 80 nm Panda-style PM Gyroscope fibers with extremely high birefringence and exceptionally tight dimensional control. These attributes are critical for manufacturing high-precision, high-performance fiber coils for fiber optic gyroscope applications.
The Panda-style PM configuration, which is universally accepted in the telecommunications industry, is preferred over the bow-tie or elliptical configurations because of its ease of use, uniformity, repeatability, and scalability. Nufern's extensive characterization labs and statistical process control allow manufacture of gyroscope fibers to extremely tight geometrical specifications.
"Our superior geometrical control makes Nufern's PM Gyroscope fibers an ideal choice for gyroscope coils where a minute change in a fiber's specifications can result in deleterious effects on gyro performance", said Vinnie Rodino, Nufern's Vice President of Sales. "Careful control of the entire fabrication process, backed by a full suite of measurement capabilities, delivers significant performance benefits to the fiber gyro customer."
The above Nufern test data demonstrates the polarization qualities of the PM Gyroscopic fiber, which maintains a high level of crosstalk isolation over a broad range of temperatures, essential to high precision gyroscopes.
Nufern designs, manufactures, sells and supports fiber intensive fiber laser modules and specialty optical fibers for a diverse range of industries. From its production, research and development facility in East Granby, Conn., USA, Nufern works from its core competencies in optical fiber design and integration to offer a wide array of standard fiber laser fiber laser modules, fiber amplifier fiber laser modules and specialty fibers. Nufern's integrated team works closely with customers to provide rapid and cost-effective fiber laser module and fiber design services.
