Manufacturing of optical fibers and fiber-optic products is a complex technological process which is ensured by the accurate maintenance of well-developed parameters of production regimes. High-quality equipment, long-term experience and great scientific researchers’ potential contribute to attaining fiber-optic products with characteristics relevant to international standards.
The key mission of the Scientific and Production Department “Fiber” is the development and manufacturing of silica optical fibers and products for civil and military applications. Today our company commercially produces following items:
The Scientific and Production Department “Fiber” also performs scientific fundamental and practical researches and developments in following perspective directions:
Over the last 20 years the intensive researches have been performed to develop, study and apply the new generation of optical fibers – microstructured and photonic crystal optical fibers which operate as a medium for delivery, conversion and generation of light beams by the methods of non-classical fiber optics. Particularly, among the last advances is the development of anti-resonant hollow-core optical fibers functioning in the mid-IR spectral range. This range will be of great demand within the next few years in optics, sensor techniques, metrology, and quantum optics.
The new commercially available product of the company is the multi-mode optical fiber with a rectangular (square) core from 100×100 to 400×400 µm for diode-based pumping systems of solid-state lasers. The advantages of this product in comparison with standard optical fibers having a round core include more uniform power distribution across the light beam cross-section and lowered losses when coupling with a laser pumping module.
