EAST GRANBY, CT - April 25, 2011 - Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers & amplifiers and fiber optic gyro coils announced today the first in a new series of matched 20/400 double-clad fibers specifically aimed at manufacturers of industrial fiber lasers.
This family of three LMA double-clad fibers includes matching photosensitive fiber for fiber Bragg gratings, Yb-doped fiber used as the gain media in lasers and amplifiers and a passive beam delivery fiber for couplers and pigtails. All the fibers utilize the latest glass composition combined with state-of-the-art coating technology (NuCOAT) and are engineered to the tightest tolerances in the industry to ensure the repeatable low loss splicing between the key components used in industrial fiber laser production.
Nick Jacobson, Director of Optical Fiber Operations reports "We are pleased to continue maturing our high power LMA fiber portfolio and this latest generation of matched 20/400 fibers is introduced to meet the specific demands of customers engaged in volume production of high power fiber lasers by ensuring compatibility across the complete chain of components."
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.
