PM Gyro Fibers

Polarization-Maintaining, Polarizing & Spun Fibers

# #

Overview

For gyroscope

The IXF-PMG family includes high performance Polarization Maintaining Fibers that are specifically designed for integration into Fiber Optic Gyroscopes on or above the earth.

Fiber diameter control is critical during coil winding: our fibers exhibit very high consistency / accuracy of the coating diameter not only in each batch, but also from batch to batch.

Highlights
