LOW-BIREFRINGENCE OPTICAL FIBER
Feb 2000Oxford Electronics Ltd.Request Info
Oxford Electronics Ltd. has introduced a range of low-birefringence optical fibers that transmit polarized light without introducing rotation of polarization. They are suitable for sensors where the fiber itself is used as a sensing element, such as in a Faraday current sensor, and for applications that require transmission of polarized light without aligning the fiber axis with the plane of polarized light, as is necessary with polarization-preserving fiber. The fibers are available for use at wavelengths from 600 to 1500 nm and with cladding diameters of 80 and 125 µm.
