Optical Fiber Cables deliver tactical durability.

At 0.8 mm dia, Micro-Links (-µlinx™) cables deliver tactical durability for use in manned/unmanned vehicles. Aircraft-specific -µlinx Avionics cables weigh 0.7 g/m and feature braided aramid yarn and -65 to 150°C performance range. ETFE cable jacket resists abrasion and chemicals. With Hytrel® jacket over underlying aramid yarn, -µlinx Tether cables suit ground vehicles. Both designs are...

Hollow-Core Optical Fiber suits high precision gyroscopes.

Employing air-filled core surrounded by glass webbing, Hollow-Core Fiber allows light to propagate through free space rather than solid glass core. Radiation hardened fiber can be bent and coiled to tight bend radius while guiding light. Single-spatial-mode forces light to take only single path, enabling high bandwidth and low noise. Orientation of light waves is fixed in fiber, which is...

Single-Mode Fiber offers high power, low loss at 100 Gbps.

Designed for 100 Gbps coherent transport in submarine systems for distances up to 12,000 km, TeraWave™ ULA Ocean Fiber has effective area- of 153 -µm-²- that reduces nonlinearities. This enables launch of higher signal power into span as well as low attenuation- - (0.176 dB/km at 1,550 nm)- that reduces signal loss. Nonlinearity performance and spectral efficiency increase in shorter...
