For high efficiency over a wide range of pump powers at 980 nm, we offer these fibers for operation in the C-Band. These fiber products feature excellent spectral reproducibility and batch-to-batch uniformity, drawing on 20 years of production experience. The fibers are optimized for single- or multi-stage amplifiers at various power ranges.
