Corning – Specialty Optical Fiberscorning-LOGO

For telecommunications, sensing, industrial, and medical industries.


Specialty Fiber Products:


High-Index Fiber:

High-index fibers are used across telecommunication, aerospace, and industrial markets


High Temp Fiber:

High Temperature Fibers are designed for applications requiring improved fatigue resistance, high usable strength, and excellent resistance to higher temperatures and hydrogen permeation.
The fiber consists of single-mode or multimode core and single or dual coating system, including a hermetic carbon layer (optional) and a high temperature acrylate layer.


PANDA/Polarization Maintaining Fiber:

PANDA PM fibers from wavelengths of 400-1550nm and designs such as High NA and Flame Retardant coatings.


Special Single-Mode Fiber:

Low wavelength RGB400 for sensors in Red-Green-Blue wavelengths
SMF-28e+ Photonic Fiber which has unique properties of reduced core-to-cladding offset, tighter cladding geometries for lower splicing losses, and guaranteed single-mode operation without cabling
ClearCurve Photonic optical fiber for tight bending applications
RC SMF optical fiber which is an 80 micron clad design for small form factor applications


Erbium-Doped Fiber:

Erbium-doped fiber designs are available for conventional C-band, L-band, and reduced-clad (80 μm) applications.
• Single and multi-channel optical amplifiers
• Digital and analog systems
• Community antenna television (CATV) amplifiers


Fibrance Light-Diffusing Fiber:




High Temp/Harsh Environment Fiber
  Special Single-Mode Fiber

Medical: Fiber Optic Probes
Medical Optics

Telecommunications: High-Performance 
Erbium-Doped Fiber
  High-Index Fiber/Bend Insensitive
