Pure Silica Core Polarization Maintaining Fiber for UV-VIS Wavelengths
Nufern’s industry leading short wavelength pure silica core polarization maintaining fibers have superior waveguide, radiation, and mechanical properties, enabling a large variety of applications in diverse markets. High consistency and extreme end-to-end control of optical properties provide particular advantage in spectrographic and frequency sensitive applications. The pure silica core fiber is optimum for demanding applications in the UV and visible spectrum requiring ultra-low attenuation over longer lengths and where resistance to radiation-induced damage and color center formation are critical. Extended range XP and XP+ versions of PM-S405 offer the broadest operational wavelength range with minimal
lot to lot beam divergence variation on the XP+ version.
The Beam Divergence for PM-S405-XP+:
150 +10/-15 mRads @ 405 nm
140 +10/-20 mRads @ 488 nm
115 ±10 mRads @ 635 nm
7.5 ± 1.0 µm @ 630 nm
≤ 30.0 dB/km @ 630 nm
≤ 30.0 dB/km @ 488 nm
