Learn more about our fluoride glass fibers specifications

 

Since the discovery of ZBLAN glasses in 1974, Le Verre Fluoré has worked to develop a large range of fluoride optical fibers, including ZrF4, InF3 and AlF3 based optical fibers, designed for mid infrared applications.

Find below some specifications of our multimode and single mode fibers such as typical transmission or attenuation, long term bending radius and working temperatures.
