Product Overview


PFP 980C-HP fiber is a high-performance, mid-NA fiber optimized for use by coupler manufacturers in the telecom industry. It features low, consistent splice and bend loss, and a design to minimize excess loss in the coupler. The fiber is produced with extremely tight second mode cut-off tolerance, and the high tensile strength critical for long-term reliability in tight bend radius applications. These high-performance specifications also result in improved production yields and reduced component manufacturer costs.
  • WDM pump/signal couplers for EDFAs
  • CATV couplers; Tap couplers
  • Bi-directional splitters and combiners
  • Ultra-compact components requiring small bend radii
Features & Benefits
  • Exceptional uniformity and core/clad concentricity-Low, consistent splice loss to telecom components
  • Extremely tight second mode cutoff tolerance-High yield coupler manufacturing
  • Higher proof test levels-Critical for long-term reliability in tight bend applications
