The F-SPA Polarization Maintaining Fiber uses Fibercore's Bow-tie polarization maintaining (PM) fiber technology. This highly birefringent (HiBi) fiber, is optimized for operation at 488/514 nm wavelengths and has a beat-length of less than 2 mm. The beat-length, the length over which the fiber polarization rotates through 360°, is one of the fundamental performance measures: the shorter the beat-length, the better the polarization-preserving properties of the fiber. This Polarization Maintaining fiber has a 125 µm cladding, 245 µm coating, a 3.6 µm Mode Field Diameter, and a 0.10 to 0.13 NA. Standard pricing is per meter.
Volume discount: 11 - 50 m with 15 %, 51- 100 m with 22 %, 101- 500 m with 25 %, > 501 m with 28 %. Discount applicable to continuous length of fiber only.
