Guiding light by refraction is a fairly simple and old technology, demonstrated a hundred years ago.

After decades of improvements in the field of optical material purity and composition, manufacturers have reduced signal attenuation level, down far below standard communication medium like copper. This was a milestone for the development of modern communication highways.

Mersen has developed dedicated process solutions with most of the optical fiber manufacturers, answering their requirements of:

High material purity:

 

Strict control of the thermal process gradient:
