The aeroGUIDE PCF cables are based on our popular Large Mode Area fibers designed for optical beam transport and delivery.
Get performance beyond conventional fibers, such as broadband single-mode operation, large mode area for high power handling and low non-linearities, superior beam quality, low loss, and polarization-maintaining features.
The aeroGUIDE is ideal for single-mode transport and delivery, multi-wavelength transmission, broadband delivery, and mode filtering
- Truly single-mode fiber
- 400-2000 nm guidance in one fiber
- Sealed ends with beam expansion
- Wavelength independent MFD
- Pure silica fiber
The aeroGUIDE series come in two basic configurations: Standard and Power.
The Standard series is designed for ultra-broadband delivery while the Power series is optimized for high power delivery.
The Power series is especially suited for the delivery of high power narrow linewidth lasers where other fiber delivery solutions are often limited by SBS.
