5/130 Passive Double Clad Fiber
Nufern’s general purpose passive double-clad fiber is available in two-versions — PANDA-style, polarization-maintaining (PM) and non-PM. Designed specifically to work with 5/130 Yb-doped active fibers for CW applications at lower powers, ensuring low loss and improved splice compatability. These fibers’ telecom-type geometrics are compatible with readily available low-cost pump diodes and fiber-based components. They utilize the latest fiber design and NuCOAT coating technology to ensure excellent preservation of beam quality and extended operating life demanded by today’s industrial fiber laser applications.
