OFS Highly Non-Linear Fibre with Stable Phase-matching for Improved Nonlinear Efficiency (HNLF-SPINE) combines a high non-linear coefficient with a zero dispersion wavelength that is very stable along the fibre length. The fiber design includes a high delta core, doped with GeO2, surrounded by a deeply depressed ring doped with fluorine. The HNLF is available with zero dispersion wave from 1526 to 1543 and at 1566 nm.
