Cladding Mode Offset Photosensitive Single-Mode Fiber
Nufern's Cladding Mode Offset Fibers offer enhanced performance when writing two or more gratings adjacent to each other (circa 9 nm offset). Cladding Mode Offset fibers exhibit low splice loss to the industry-standard telecommunications fiber. This photosensitive fiber provides a cost-savings for grating-writing because customers can write highly repeatable, quality gratings in a short time.
