Nonlinear photonic crystal fibers

Nonlinear photonic crystal fibers

Our nonlinear photonic crystal fibers are optimized for supercontinuum generation and nonlinear wavelength conversion. You get a unique combination of a tailored dispersion profile and a very high nonlinear coefficient.

We offer single-mode supercontinuum fibers optimized for the most common pumping laser wavelengths. Most of our nonlinear fibers are available with hermetically sealed ends and FC/PC connectors.

Nonlinear supercontinuum fibers

We offer single-mode supercontinuum fibers optimized for all important pumping laser wavelengths. The majority of our nonlinear fibers are available with hermetically sealed ends and FC/PC connectors.

These single-mode non-linear photonic crystal fibers combine a very small effective mode field area and low/zero-dispersion to allow efficient supercontinuum generation with 800 nm and 1064 nm pump sources.
