• 980nm Photonic Fibers
Wheter used in the typical 980nm applications two specifications are critical : Numerical Aperture (N.A) & Mode Field Diameter (MFD).
980 Photonics fiber are available in two wavelength range : 980nm or 980/1550nm
• 1310/1550nm Photonics Fibers
Fibers in the 1550 and 1310nm operating wavelength range are designed for use in devices and components at the standard transmission wavelength but with a choice of N.A 0.12 to 0.21.
If the goal is to mode match with standard transmission fibers, choose low N.A.
This should be balanced with your bend performance requirements, as bend performance improves with higher N.A.
