In addition to conventional optical fibers, fibers with special properties are available for specific applications. These fibers include polymer optical fibers (POFs) for data transmission, sapphire fibers for wavelengths > 2000 nm, and fiber bundles used in cold light sources for illumination purposes.
Specialty fibers in the area of SM fibers, PM fibers, photosensitive fibers, multi-core fibers, SPUN fibers, doped fibers, pump fibers, MM fibers, and FBGs.
Fibercore has introduced different types of specialty fibers, with a focus on SM fibers, PM fibers, photosensitive fibers, multi-core fibers, SPUN fibers, doped fibers, pump fibers, MM fibers, and FBGs. Custom fibers are also available upon request.
These fibers can be used in many different types of applications. Depending on the model, they can be applied in the areas of sensor technology, such as in building supervision or health checks, gyroscopy, the oil and gas industry, current sensor systems, telecommunications, spectroscopy, confocal microscopy, cryogenic and nuclear applications, aeronautics, chemistry, and the energy sector.
Medical and sensor applications in particular, such as applications under harsh environmental conditions, require special solutions. The use of these fibers has increased significantly because the advantages over conventional methods using fully-developed fiber technology have become more and more evident in many areas. In addition, these fibers can be used in Laser Components’ in-house production (assembly shop) to manufacture custom cables and solutions.
