Nufern Holmium-doped fibre now available from stock

Nufern have introduced two Holmium doped fibres, increasing the operational wavelength of their standard range of active fibres to 2150 nm. The result of years of research and development,  the fibres feature a double-clad design and the recently developed NuCOATTM coating technology, which affords greater durability and longer life.

The eye-safe Ho-doped standard fibres available through Elliot Scientific come in two geometrical configurations — a 25 µm core diameter with a 250 µm clad diameter,  and a 40 µm core diameter with a 400 µm clad diameter. These fibres achieve 60% efficiency when resonantly pumped with a Thulium fibre laser. The optimal operating wavelength range for Ho-doped fibre is between 2000 and 2150 nm, making them an ideal choice for a variety of medical lasers as well as power scaling for a host of military laser applications such as LIDAR.

For more information about these fibres and others we offer from Nufern, please contact us.
