Product Overview


PFP extra high-performance Planar Waveguide Fiber provides a solution to the splicing challenges for high NA waveguiding structures. Industry developments indicate the call out for easy interfacing of new planar waveguide (PWG) technology with existing fiber infrastructures. Planar Waveguide Fiber is an excellent bridge fiber between high NA planar waveguides and low NA transmission fiber. This fiber allows outstanding optical coupling with planar waveguides. In addition, the composition of PWG1-XP is tailored to thermally expand the core during splicing and thus achieve low splice loss to transmission fibers.

  • Fibertails for Planar Waveguides
  • Bridge Fiber
Features & Benefits
  • High numerical aperture - Bend insensitive fiber for miniature packages
  • Thermally expandable core - Low splice loss to transmission fiber
