Graded Index Fibre

We specialise in the termination of optical fibres, connectors and devices across diverse sectors, medical, aerospace, sensor, telecommunications, defence and more.

A type of multimode fibre which used a graded profile of refractive index in the core material to correct for dispersion. An optical fibre with a core having a refractive index that decreases with increasing radial distance from the fibre axis. The most common refractive index profile for a graded index fibre is very nearly parabolic. The parabolic profile results in continual refocusing of the rays in the core and compensates for multimode distortion. Has greater bandwidth than step index fibre, but less bandwidth than single mode fibre.
