Quadruply Clad Fiber
A single mode optical Fiber with four claddings. The Refractive Index of each Cladding is lower than the core. With respect to one another, their relative refractive indices are, in order of distance from the core: lowest, highest, lower, higher.
A quadruply clad fiber has the advantage of very low Macrobending losses. It also has two zero-dispersion points, and moderately low Dispersion over a wider Wavelength range than a singly clad fiber or a doubly clad fiber.
