Guide to Bend-insensitive Multimode Fiber 1

Guide to Bend-insensitive Multimode Fiber

A common problem facing cabling installers during installation or other fiber handling is the light losses or weaker optical signal, which is caused by the fact that when a fiber bend radius exceeds the specified figure, the angle at which the light hits the cladding changes and some light will escape and result in power loss. It’s known that light losses is the commonplace found in fibers, like LC-SC multimode fiber patch cord. In 2009, bend-insensitive multimode fiber (BIMMF) has been introduced, which can withstand tight bends, or even kinks, or other withstand tough treatment without suffering significant light losses in many cases.
