GigaPOF-120SR combines the best of the glass and plastic optical fiber worlds, meeting the need for a high-performance fiber that can be used with very inexpensive connectors and apparatus.

  • graded-index profile with higher bandwidth than any other type of plastic optical fiber
  • low attenuation
  • infrared transparency
  • exacting geometric tolerances
  • easy termination
  • compatibility with conventional glass fiber transceivers
  • long-term tight-bending tolerance (bend radius as small as 10 millimeters)

The 120 micron core of this fiber allows wide alignment and dimensional tolerances for components, but still couples well to most high-speed detectors.  Easily terminated with simple, inexpensive tools, it polishes in seconds to a smooth, low-loss end face.
