    Erbium-doped fibers

    Corning® manufactures its erbium-doped fibers using the patented “Outside Vapor Deposition” method (OVD). Erbium-doped fibers are used in optical amplifiers, like erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs).

    Corning® Erbium-doped specialty fibers*

    Manufactured with Corning’s patented outside vapor deposition (OVD) process, Corning® Erbium-doped specialty fibers set the worldwide standard for uniformity and reliability. Corning offers erbium-doped fibers with hermetic coatings for significant advantage with respect to mechanical reliability and resistance to hydrogen-induced optical attenuation degradation.

    Erbium-doped fiber designs are available for conventional C-band, L-band, and reduced cladding (80 μm) applications.
