Large Mode Area photonic crystal fibers
Our Large Mode Area photonic crystal fibers are designed for diffraction-limited high-power delivery. The large mode area prevents nonlinear effects and material damage.
With standard fibers, you trade large mode areas for single-mode operation. With our Large Mode Area fibers, you get single-mode operation in a wide range of wavelengths.
Endlessly single-mode operation
Handles high powers
Low fiber loss
Core sizes from 5 to 25 microns
With standard technology, you trade large mode areas for single-mode operation. But our crystal fiber Large Mode Area fibers provide single-mode operation in a wide wavelength range.
For fibers with connectors, please see our aeroGUIDE patch cords or our SuperK CONNECT fiber delivery system.
The fibers are available in polarizing and polarization-maintaining versions.

If you want more details about how to handle optical fibers: Strip, cleave, and couple them, we have some application notes for you.
Optical fibers require proper handling to ensure a long lifetime and prevent fiber breaking. Read this guideline to learn how to handle optical fiber to keep both fiber and operator safe.
Read this application note if you would like to learn how to handle our optical fibers, e.g., including how to strip the protective coating, how to cleave the fibers, and how to couple light to and from the fibers.
