Corning’s Specialty Fibers are used in a wide range of applications including fibers required for components in the well-established telecommunications market to the fibers required in emerging markets like medical, lighting and sensing applications and beyond. We can design custom fibers to support entirely new markets and innovations where fibers will be an essential component.
Our strategy is to look at fiber — the actual glass core and cladding, and the protective coatings — in terms of a matrix where each or all can be rapidly customized at our customers direction. We can do this in terms of size, optical properties, temperature/environment resistance, bend insensitivity, operating wavelength, etc.
If you don’t see a particular fiber in our catalog that meets your needs, please contact us to discuss your unique requirements.
Our specialty fibers serve the following markets: aerospace and defense, geophysical, harsh environment, medical, sensing and lighting.
