Optical signal in a hollow core anti-resonant fibre propagates in an air core surrounded by single ring of anti-resonant tube elements. Guidance is based on an anti-resonance from the thin glass membranes constituted by the non-touching tubes surrounding the hollow core. The extremely low overlap of guided power with the surrounding silica, less than 2×10-5, added to the mode effective area, confers to this fibre design record material non-linearity.
Low latency hollow-core cables
IDIL and Photonics Bretagne launch a new range of anti-resonant Hollow-core fiber optic cables. They combine low latency data transmission, high bandwidth connections and low loss; three features highly sought after by high frequency trading.
“We are proud to be at the forefront of this technological breakthrough where each nanosecond counts” said David MECHIN from Photonics Bretagne.
“Low latency cables are fully compatible and deployable in existing communication networks. These indoor/outdoor cables are easy to integrate and customizable. Customers can choose the length, number of fibers, connectors” said Boris PEDRONO from IDIL.
