Rainbow Bar

For Non-Telecommunications Wavelengths

Rainbow Bar

Metroteks Singlemode Optical Fibers are designed for those situations in which you need singlemode operation at wavelengths other than 1300 nm or 1550nm.

1. The Design Wavelength is the wavelength (or wavelengths) at the which the fiber is typically used. In practice, the fiber will transmit a TEM00 mode at any wavelength within an operating window extending approximately 150 nm from the cut-off wavelength.
2. Attenuation is quoted for the shortest Design wavelength.
3. Localised, peak-to-peak variations of up to 3% may be experienced.
