Specialty optical fibers are the fundamental enablers to the devices that make optical communications networks and sensing systems operable by coupling, amplifying, filtering, splitting and combining light signals.

AFL designs and manufactures innovative specialty Verrillon® optical fibers used in optical components and modules. We collaborate closely with our customers to develop fibers and components that improve their system performance, lower manufacturing and material costs, reduce component footprint, expand network functionality and enhance manufacturing process automation.

In addition to custom products, AFL’s Communications Specialty Optical Fibers include coupler fibers, erbium-doped, photosensitive, select cutoff and polarization-maintaining fibers. These products are available in various diameter sizes including 80 µm and 125 µm, as well as a wide range of numerical apertures refractive index profiles and coating combinations.
