Bare Fiber/Tight Buffer/Large Core Fiber Optic Cable

Bare optical fiber is a piece of glass that is drawn into a thin strand with a diameter less than a human hair. There are three parts that make up an optical fiber, the core, the cladding and the acrylate coating. The core runs down the center of the fiber and this is where the light pulses travel as they transmit information to its destination. The cladding surrounds the core and is made of glass that has a very low index of refraction and its purpose is to keep the light traveling down the core instead of “leaking” out which would cause loss of signal strength or attenuation. The last layer is the acrylate coating, which allows the fiber to be flexible enough to be wound on a spool and handled, typically without breaking.
