Optical fiber jumper is mainly divided into polarization maintaining single-mode optical fiber jumper and single-mode optical fiber jumper.
What is single-mode fiber?
Single mode fiber: the central glass core is very thin (the core diameter is generally 9 or 10 μ m) Only one mode of optical fiber can be transmitted. Therefore, its inter mode dispersion is very small, and it is suitable for remote communication. Compared with multimode fiber, it can support a longer transmission distance. In 100Mbps Ethernet and 1G gigabit networks, single-mode fiber can support a transmission distance of more than 5000m.
What is a polarization maintaining fiber?Polarization maintaining fiber: Polarized light of polarization maintaining fiber transmission line is widely used in aerospace, aviation, navigation, industrial manufacturing technology, communication and other fields of national economy. In the interferometric optical fiber sensor based on optical coherence detection, the use of polarization maintaining fiber can ensure that the linear polarization direction remains unchanged, improve the coherent signal-to-noise ratio, and achieve high-precision measurement of physical quantities. As a special optical fiber, polarization maintaining fiber is mainly used in fiber optic gyroscope, fiber optic hydrophone and other sensors and optical fiber communication systems.
