Scientific and Technical Information

Read our encyclopedia article on large mode area fibers!

See also the related articles on large-core fibers, effective mode area, bend losses, numerical aperture, fiber amplifiers and photonic crystal fibers.

Before buying, get informed on the tech­nical back­ground. The Encyclopedia of Laser Physics and Technology presents a large volume of high-quality scientific and technical information.

Check List for Large Mode Area Fibers

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • What is the effective mode area or mode radius? (There are special large mode area fibers.)
  • Is the fiber truly single-mode, or does it support a few modes? (In the latter case, careful launching maybe important for the output beam quality, and certain instabilities can occur for operation with very high average output power.)
  • What are the propagation losses (in dB/km)?
  • Does it need to be polarization-maintaining?
  • How tight bending is possible, before the bend losses become too high?
  • How much optical power can the fiber tolerate? (Additional properties at the launch end may still occur if too much power gets to the coating.)
  • What is the outer fiber diameter with and without protective coating?
  • What is the coating material? Is it a standard material which can be removed with a usual fiber stripper?

For active fibers, also look at the check list for rare-earth-doped fibers.

In case that you need additional advice, consultancy from RP Photonics may be the solution.
