Corning Introduces New Ultra-bendable Optical Fiber for Consumer Electronics

Post Time:Mar 06,2012Classify:Company NewsView:366

Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today introduced ClearCurve® VSDN® optical fiber, the newest innovation in the ClearCurve® family of bend-insensitive fibers. This fiber is uniquely designed to support emerging high-speed interconnects between computers and other consumer electronics devices.


“We are thrilled to introduce optical connectivity into the consumer electronics market,” said Barry Linchuck, division vice president and director, Worldwide Marketing, Corning Optical Fiber. “In addition to the consumer advantage of higher connection speeds, device makers will benefit from lighter, more robust connectivity with greater design flexibility, and thus lower cost solutions.” 


With its rugged design, ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber has the ability to handle intermittent bends down to 1.5 mm in radius, while exhibiting ultra-low bending loss and superior mechanical reliability. Unlike fibers for telecommunications, ClearCurve VSDN optical fiber has a larger core size and higher numerical aperture, enabling lower-cost connectivity – essential for consumer applications – while exceeding the bandwidth needs of consumer electronics applications above 10 Gb/s.
