Scientific and Technical Information

Read our encyclopedia article on single-mode fibers!

See also the related articles on numerical aperture, V number, multimode fibers, cut-off wavelength and mode matching.

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 Single-mode Fibers

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • What is the cut-off wavelength? (Below that wavelength, the fiber will be multimode.)
  • What is the effective mode area or mode radius? (There are special large mode area fibers.)
  • (The core diameter and numerical aperture are usually not relevant, if the mode area is known.)
  • Does it need to be polarization-maintaining?
  • What are the propagation losses (in dB/km)?
  • 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?
  • Can the fiber be cleaved with a standard fiber cleaver? (Fluoride fibers, for example, have quite different mechanical properties than silica fibers.)

For active fibers, 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.
