LASER COMPONENTS has added to its portfolio two new specialty fibres, a highly doped
single clad 6μm core diameter Ytterbium doped fibre and a low NA double clad 20μm core
diameter Ytterbium doped fibre.The IXF-YDF-6-125 single clad Yb fibre features a 6μm core and 125μm cladding diame-
ters. The doping level has been increased by a factor of three compared to existing fibres,
reaching 75dB/m core absorption at 915nm. This fibre is ideal to minimise path length in
femtosecond fibre lasers or pre-amplifiers. The fibre is available in Polarisation Maintaining
(PM) or non-PM versions.
The IXF-2CF-Yb-O-20-130-NL dual clad Yb fibre features a 20μm core and 130μm cladding
diameter. The fibre features a 0.08 numerical aperture and has been specifically developed
for integration into high power industrial amplifiers and high peak power laser applications
requiring good beam quality. The material composition of the fibre was carefully selected
to avoid photodarkening effect.
LASER COMPONENTS specialises in the development, manufacture, and sale of components
and services in the laser and optoelectronics industry. At LASER COMPONENTS, we have
