H-PCF Optical Fiber
H-PCF optical fiber is a unique fiber made with a pure silica core and a low index polymer cladding.
The low OH fiber is ideally suited for use with both 650nm (POF type) and 850nm (standard multimode) active devices.
The large 200µm core diameter allows for easy handling and high coupling efficiency to LEDs, RC-LEDs, VCSEL and other laser sources.
A variety of high numeric apertures are available (from 0.37 to 0.46). Sumitomo also allows for additional functionality by offering two Semi-graded index versions for bandwidths up to 100 Mhz-km*
The special hard clad provides higher temperature stability than conventional claddings. In addition, it allows for fast and efficient “crimp and cleave” field terminations to a variety of connector types.
