Sep 19th, 2001

Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) introduced a new polarization maintaining (PM) single-mode optical fiber and composite coating designed to enhance high-speed, dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) communication systems.

PureMode 14XX PM fiber, optimized for the 1400-1490 nm band, is ideal for next generation applications such as Raman amplification. It is the newest addition to Corning's line of PureMode PM fibers, which are primarily used with high performance transmission lasers and modulators in DWDM systems operating at 10 Gb/s and above. PM 14XX fiber maintains PureMode products' high uniformity and performance standards that are critically important to evolving all-optical systems.

PureMode 14XX PM fiber also marks the introduction of a new dual-acrylate composite fiber coating. This robust coating increases uniform adhesion - an advantage in complex, high-speed DWDM systems, which require more handling of photonic fiber.
