Corning’s ClearCurve®XB fiber is a full-spectrum optical fiber with improved macro-bend performance compared to legacy single-mode fibers. Products of all types are constantly decreasing their size and becoming more complex. Having the ability to place fibers in increasingly smaller footprints without performance degradation is crucial to keeping the optical loss budgets low. The contribution by bend loss to the overall loss budget increases as the amount of fiber that is deployed in the bent state increases. Having a fiber that is designed for low bend loss makes these new smaller products a reality.
