Salem, NH, January 30, 2003. StockerYale announced the availability of three new specialty optical fibers (SOF) - two Bend Insensitive fibers and one Low-Loss Cladding Mode Suppression fiber. These three new products join an ever-increasing portfolio of specialty optical fibers that the Company is marketing to a wide range of industries including the telecommunications, gyroscope, and sensors.

StockerYale's two new bend insensitive fibers are designed for improved bend performance in reduced radius applications and have a moderately higher numerical aperture (NA) than standard single-mode telecom fibers. The moderate NA delivers lower bend loss at 1310 and 1550 nm without significantly affecting splicing performance.

The Company's bend insensitive fibers are currently available in a 125 or 80 um clad diameter and can also be manufactured with higher numerical apertures for more demanding applications. StockerYale's bend insensitive fibers are ideal for tight bend radius conditions, multiple fiber wraps on a mandrel, fused fiber couplers, and fiber optic sensors.

StockerYale's low-loss cladding mode suppression fiber is intended for the fabrication of high-quality fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs). Because the coupling of the core mode to cladding modes is highly suppressed, StockerYale's cladding mode suppression fibers virtually eliminate cladding mode loss peaks in the transmission spectrum.

Additionally, because of its proprietary FBG simulation software, StockerYale is able to design CMS fiber that attains the achievable physical limit of cladding mode suppression. StockerYale's cladding mode suppression fibers are ideal for the manufacture of DWDM filters, dispersion compensating filters, and gain-flattening filters.
