Specialty Fibers : Polarization Maintaining Fibers

The IXF-PMG family of fibers consists of advanced performances Polarization Maintaining Fibers specially designed for Fiber Optic Gyroscopes for terrestrial and space environment.
The glass chemical composition and the proper choice of raw materials guarantee an extremely low sensitivity to temperature variation.

Fiber diameter control is critical during coil winding; our fibers exhibit high stability coating diameter not only along each batch, but also from batch to batch.

 

Key features:

  • Panda & Tiger design available
  • Design for space environment
  • Qualified by international inertial sensing manufacturers
  • Highly proof strength
  • Core/clad concentricity (μm): < 1
  • Zero Twist
  • Cladding diameter :40, 80, 125 μm, other diameters on request
  • Various coating diameters, tuned to customers specifications
  • High stability coating diameter along each batch and from batch to batch
