Coherent Bend Insensitive Fibre

Fibres designed for improved bend performance in reduced radius applications

Coherent

Coherent Inc's bend insensitive fibres are designed for improved bend performance in reduced radius applications. The fibres employ a moderately higher numerical aperture (NA) than standard single-mode telecome fibres. The moderate NA delivers lower bend loss at 1550, 1310 and 780nm without significantly affecting splicing performance. Higher numerical aperture fibres are available upon request to further reduce the sensitivity of the fibre to bend loss.

Features:

  • Excellent geometric specifications
  • Reduced bend loss sensitivity versus standard telecom fibres
  • Good splicing performance
  • High strength
  • Available in a 125µm and 80µm clad diameter

The BIF-1550 series has a moderately higher numerical aperture (NA) than standard single-mode telecom fibres and offers improved bend performance for applications in the 1550nm range.

The BIF-780 series of bend insensitive single-mode fibre maximises the performance of photonic devices by optimised fibre coupling to components.
