Bow-Tie Fiber

It is a highly birefringent or HiBi SAP fiber where the stress across the core is created by the addition of two Bow-Tie shape stress applying parts (SAPs) in the fiber cladding at opposite sides to the core. The exact shape of the bows, their composition and separation to the core can be modified during the manufacturing process, so different levels of birefringence are delivered. Fibercore’s HiBi polarization maintaining fibers are Bow-Tie fibers.
