Company Description

Fibercore is the global leader in specialty optical fiber solutions that enable precise sensing and control in the world’s most demanding and harsh environments.

Through five decades, Fibercore has contributed to monumental changes in technology and its impacts on people and society. If you use the internet or stream movies, chances are that Fibercore is in the signal chain. If you fly, chances are that Fibercore is in the navigation, stabilization, and other systems. If you benefit from GPS, mapping, weather, or other satellites, chances are that Fibercore is helping keep it properly oriented and solar-powered.

Our fibers are found everywhere from the ocean depths to the surface of Mars. They’re used to help protect soldiers and catch drug-runners. They’re sent down boreholes to help maximize oil and gas production and sent into the human body to help find tumors, perform surgeries and identify the perfect location to place life-preserving stents. Fibercore is in all of these places, and so many more.

multi-core fibersS Emulti-core fibers from Fibercore

Multi-core fibers provide a platform for the next generation medical shape sensing, data center transmission cables and temperature/strain sensing. They can be used to dramatically reduce the amount of space required for connecting to photonic integrated circuits, and other applications that require precise alignment of several optical cores in a small space. By combining multiple cores for multiple signals into a single multi-core fiber with a 125 micron diameter, designers have a new capability not offered by single fibers. In addition, the fiber has photosensitive cores, allowing fiber Bragg grating (FBG) inscription into each core.

multimode fibersS Emultimode fibers from Fibercore

Fibercore's multimode (MM) fibers are available in graded index (GRIN) variants with 50 μm and 62.5 μm germanium doped cores, along with bend insensitive options. In addition to these germanium doped cores, Fibercore offers pure silica core GRIN fibers specifically designed for long term use in downhole hydrogen environments as experienced in the oil & gas industry, and applications where resistance to radiation effects is required.

photosensitive fibersSphotosensitive fibers from Fibercore

Fibercore’s photosensitive (PS) series of fibers have a high-germania and boron co-doped core composition, enabling high-reflectivity gratings to be written without the need to hydrogen-load. The mode field diameters of the boron co-doped fibers are engineered so gratings may be spliced into standard telecommunications, or pigtailing fiber with minimal excess loss.

polarization-maintaining fibersS Epolarization-maintaining fibers from Fibercore

Fibercore’s industry leading polarization-maintaining fiber (PM fiber), is designed for high performance interferometric and plarimetric sensors, integrated optics and communications. Fibercore’s family of PM fiber is called HiBi for its high birefringence and is manufactured with the bow-tie configuration where the Stress Applying Parts (SAPs) act as opposing wedges generating optimum stress distribution within the fibers, giving the very best in performance.

spun fibersS Espun fibers from Fibercore

Optimized for current sensing, Fibercore's range of SHB Spun High Birefringence (HiBi) fibers are designed to allow long lengths of fiber to be used in small diameter coils for Faraday effect current sensors. SHB fibers are fabricated by spinning a ‘bow-tie’ polarization-maintaining preform during the fiber drawing process.

triple-clad fibersS Etriple-clad fibers from Fibercore

Fibercore’s triple-clad doped fibers are designed for fiber lasers and high power CATV and telecoms amplifiers. Their unique triple cladding structure is designed to encapsulate the octagonal mode mixing pump guide within a circular outer cladding, enabling lower splice losses and lower splice variability associated with fibers with octagonal outer regions. This triple cladding structure also gives an additional mode confinement structure to reduce the amount of pump light at the cladding-coating interface to aid coating reliability.
