Design Reduces Stress in Fibre Core

Universal Clad (UniClad) optical fibre from Fiberguide is designed for integration into fibre-based lasers and OEM systems performing high power transmission. The fibre uses a large core-to-clad ratio to reduce stress transfer to its core, maintaining laser beam quality and improving focal ratio degradation in lasers used for cutting, welding, drilling, soldering and marking.

UniClad fibre has a pure fused silica core and doped fused silica cladding with a polymer coating. The fibre has a fixed 500µm cladding diameter for 100-400µm core sizes, and proportionately larger cladding for 600-800µm core sizes, to make laser alignment and splicing easier. Complete high power laser assemblies are also available.
