    Specialty optical fiber is modified, usually by doping, for a specialized function. It consists of one or more transparent fibers enclosed in a protective covering. How to Select Specialty Optical Fiber. Bare plastic optical fiber. | Optical fiber... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Optical Interleavers - (6 companies)
    Optical interleavers are 3-port passive fiber optic devices that are used to combine two sets of dense wavelength division mulitplexing (DWDM) channels into a composite signal. The interleaving process can be repeated, creating even denser composite... Learn More
  • Optical Isolators - (78 companies)
    Optical isolators are optical devices that allow light to be transmitted in only one direction. They are most often used to prevent any light from reflecting back down the fiber, as this light would enter the source and cause feedback problems... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDR) - (92 companies)
    Optical Time Domain Reflectometers (OTDR) Information. Optical time domain reflectometers (OTDR) measure the elapsed time and intensity of light reflected along an optical fiber. They are useful tools for locating problems in an optical network... Search by Specification | Learn More
  • Optical Line Terminals - (7 companies)
    Optical Line Terminals serve as service provider endpoints of a passive optical network by converting between electrical (voice, data, video, etc.) and fiber optic signals while also coordinating multiplexing between the two. Learn More

...output power. Receivers typically employ PIN (positive-intrinsic-negative) or avalanche photodiodes (APDs) as detectors. PINs have better short and long wavelength response, while APDs have higher sensitivity, having 10 times the gain. Cable optical qualities determine overall system performance...
