Zing™ Polarizing Fiber

Bow-Tie single polarization fibers for all-fiber polarizers

  • Wide and stable polarizing window with a range of deployment conditions
  • Consistently low loss and high PER of 30dB+
  • Extreme birefringence with excellent handling characteristics
  • Functional tunability

Typical Applications:

  • Fiber lasers
  • Laser diodes
  • Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOGs)
  • Current sensors
  • Interferometric sensors

To tune the fiber for your application, changing the length of the fiber and/or the coil diameter, can alter the central wavelength and operating bandwidth. For more information and to discuss your precise requirements, contact us at sales@fibercore.com
