Smart Product Number: LMA-GDF-20/400-M
20/400 NuMATCH LMA Double Clad Fibers
Nufern's Large Mode Area (LMA) and Polarization Maintaining LMA (PLMA) passive double clad fiber are ideal for high power fiber lasers and amplifiers used in military, industrial, and medical applications. These fibers feature a 20 micron diameter core and 400 micron diameter clad size with a low NA (0.065) core. They are precision matched to their active Yb-doped 20/400 LMA and PLMA matched counterparts to ensure excellent splice compatability and low loss. As with all Nufern standard Large Mode Area (LMA) fibers, these fibers are proof-tested to 100 kpsi, an industry requirement for long term reliability. They utilize the latest fiber design and NuCOATFA coating technology to ensure excellent preservation of beam quality and extended operating life at the high power levels demanded by today’s industrial fiber laser applications. These precision matched fibers are available in both non-PM and PANDA-style PM fibers.
