Nufern Fiber Sensor Components

A leader in fiber sensor components, Coherent manufactures some of the most complex sensor solutions using specialty optical fibers.

IFOG, Fiber Optic Gyroscope, Fiber Optic Delay Lines, Fiber Optic Payout Spools, Fiber Optic Current Sensing

With a 25 year legacy of winding specialty fiber coils, our engineers and scientists work with customer requirements to consistently produce some of the most sophisticated linear and other special configuration fiber sensors. We specialize in fiber optic gyroscope coils, long (~ 50km) payout spools, as well as fiber optic delay lines and current sensing coils.

Fiber Optic Gyroscope Coils
Working collaboratively with our customers, Coherent provides a great number of stock or custom coil solutions. Designs from potted, fully freestanding to totally constrained coils using pure or composite hub materials ensure environmental stability and ruggedness. Newest efforts at fiber miniaturization & hub mounting are yielding some of the worlds smallest high length precision wound coils. Cost effective and fast winding systems allow Nufern to provide a complete range of products.

Fiber Optic Delay Lines
Fiber Optic Delay Lines are available in the form of a free standing fiber optic coils or as a coil housed in a package with optical connectors for interfacing. Fibers used in these applications are manufactured in house and are usually selected for the minimum temperature dependence possible.

Fiber Optic Payout Spools
Coherent can fabricate Fiber Optic Payout Spools to customer specifications using our high strength fibers, optical fiber winding capabilities, and experience with wide ranging bonding agents. Together, these features hold the fiber together in the coil pack but at the same time would allow easy peel off of the fiber during deployment.

Fiber Optic Current Sensing Coils
Free standing current sensing coils are available in a range of sizes and fiber lengths in Helical Winding Patterns.
