Driven by customer demands, iXblue Photonics releases a new polarizing fiber (PZ) for 1053 nm and 1064 nm operation designed to be polarizing over a short length with no coiling needed. This fiber is ideally suited to manufacture patch-cords when a single polarization signals needs to be transmitted without PER degradation. This is critical and beneficial for polarization-sensitive applications such as atom cooling, quantum optics or high-energy physics. The full polarizing effect yielding more than 30 dB PER occurs with less than two meters of fiber and the standard 125μm cladding size ensures easy integration in any standard PM fiber. This fiber is available from stock and customized patch cords with connectors are also available on-demand.
