StockerYale Inc. has announced the availability of its EDF-980-T1 and EDF-RC-980-T1 erbium-doped fibers, specifically designed to boost the performance of C-band erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs).

Erbium-doped fiber assists in the regeneration of an optical signal when it passes through the EDFA. When configured within long-haul terrestrial or submarine telecommunications systems, EDFA's enable an optical signal to be sent greater distances with increased reliability.

The EDF-980-T1 is claimed to feature high NA and low bend loss, and is suitable for EDFAs that call for a tighter fiber coil. Other features better power conversion efficiency and lower splice loss, when compared to a standard single-mode fiber.

The EDF-RC-980-TI is a reduced cladding erbium-doped fiber specifically designed for use in low cost, SFF EDFAs - such as those used in the metro amplifier market.
