  • Hollow-Core Optical Fiber suits high precision gyroscopes.

    Employing air-filled core surrounded by glass webbing, Hollow-Core Fiber allows light to propagate through free space rather than solid glass core. Radiation hardened fiber can be bent and coiled to tight bend radius while guiding light. Single-spatial-mode forces light to take only single path, enabling high bandwidth and low noise. Orientation of light waves is fixed in fiber, which is ...
