Performance NXT sunlens have a lower refractive index, internal stress, and chromatic dispersion (Abbe number) than polycarbonate, resulting in lower surface reflection and rainbow effect, higher definition and sharper images.
This revolutionary advancement in multimode fiber communications systems delivers the ultimate in reach and design flexibility, compensating for both modal and chromatic dispersion to deliver verified optical performance and signal integrity beyond 10/40/100 Gb/s Ethernet and 8/16 Gb/s Fibre Channel standards requirements.
Paper OMF2, "A High-Efficiency Ytterbium-Doped Fiber Amplifier Designed for Interplanetary Laser Communications") PUSHING THE LIMITS FOR OPTICAL FIBER NETWORKS Traditionally, high bandwidth signals (40 Gb/s) could only be transmitted over approximately six kilometers of standard optical fibers without optical devices to compensate for the fibers' inherent limits, such as the chromatic dispersion which results in the separation of the different optical frequencies of the signal.
