Features

Bow-Tie Polarization Maintaining Fiber

The core is flanked by areas of high expansion, boron-doped glass, which shrink back more than the surrounding silica. Tension caused induces birefringence (creating two different indices of refraction: a higher index parallel and a lower index perpendicular to the applied stress).

High Birefringence

"Bow-Tie" cladding preserves polarization with stress-induced intrinsic birefringence. The fast axis is oriented horizontally.

“Bow-Tie” cladding preserves polarization with stress-induced intrinsic birefringence. The fast axis is oriented horizontally.

Large Wavelength Range and Short Beat Lengths

These Bow-tie polarization maintaining fibers, also known as highly birefringent (HiBi) fibers, are optimized for Visible through NIR wavelengths and have a beat-length of less than 2 mm. The beat-length, the length over which the fiber polarization rotates through 360°, is one of the fundamental performance measures: the shorter the beat-length, the better the polarization-preserving properties of the fiber.

Standard and Custom Patch Cables

Standard patch cables are available in several standard lengths with FC/UPC or FC/APC connectors. Please note that slow axis is accurately aligned to the connector key. If you need custom configuration, please use our custom patch configurator model: F-PATCH-CUSTOM .

Corning's PANDA Polarization Maintaining Fiber

Corning's PANDA polarization maintaining fibers offer low attenuation and excellent birefringence for high performance applications. The operating wavelengths range from 400-1500 nm with beat lengths ranging from less than 1.7mm to 5mm.

Volume Discount

The following volume discount schedule is automatically applied when ordering bare optical fiber: 11 - 50 m with 15 %, 51- 100 m with 22 %, 101- 500 m with 25 %, > 501 m with 28 %. Discount applicable to continuous length of fiber only.
