Fiber Modeling and Fabrication (FF)

Fiber Modeling and Fabrication

The scope of the OSA Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group covers modeling and fabrication of optical fibers for applications including telecommunication, optical networking, sensing, and others.



Upcoming Event

OSA Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group Special Talk

Wednesday, 16 September, 15:30 - 16:00

Join the OSA Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group at Frontiers in Optics for a special talk from Dr. Fan Yang, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), on intense Brillouin amplification in gas using hollow-core fibers. Dr. Yang will present a novel strong Brillouin amplification in gas using hollow-core fibers. Using this approach, Dr. Yang will then discuss a low-threshold gas Brillouin laser and a high-performance distributed temperature sensor, intrinsically free of strain cross-sensitivity. Following the talk we will have a moderated question and answer session.

Join the Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group for these exciting upcoming webinars:

Hybrid (M-type) Fibers for Dispersion Management

When: 18 September 2020, 9:00 - 10:00

Register Now

Recently, hybrid fibers (also called as M-type fibers) have been in high demand due to the ability of such fibers to manage the dispersion sign and its slope by appropriate choice of the fiber parameters. This feature is especially required for the spectral range of Yb-doped optical fibers operation (about 1 um), where standard commercially available fibers have only normal dispersion.

In the webinar hosted by the OSA Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group, Svetlana Aleshkina from the Fiber Optics Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences will discuss the history, guiding mechanism, main features and recent advances of hybrid fibers. This webinar will review modeling and fabrication aspects, including some specific techniques, for hybrid fibers creation. In addition, the webinar will provide information concerning limitations of using such fibers and ways to potentially overcome those limitations. Finally, the prospects for using hybrid fibers and their potential applications will be discussed.
