Assemblies Options

FTO works with the following list of specialty fibers.  Other types of fiber are available upon request.

All Silica (Deep UV, UV-VIS, VIS-NIR, Broadband)

All Silica fibers features core and cladding which are made from silica glass.  It is laser,radiation damage resistant, coated for extreme conditions, steralizable for ETO,e-beam,gamma radiation and made of bio compatible materials.  Ultra low OH fibers available.  Click here for more information.

Hard Polymer Clad Silica (UV-VIS, VIS-NIR)

Hard polymer clad silica fibers are cost effective alternatives to All Silica fibers.   It features High fiber strength, Reduced static fatigue, High numerical aperture, Biocompatible materials, Radiation resistant, High core to clad ratio, High concentricity and is sterilizable by ETO, gamma radiation.  Click here for more information.

Fluoride (MIR)

These fibers are based upon zirconium fluoride (ZrF4) and indium fluoride (InF3) host glasses which has a useful transmission range from 300 nm to 5500 nm.  This fiber features Excellent spectral uniformity and high laser damage threshold.  It is Ideal for Holmium and Erbium laser delivery and is sterilizable by ETO, e-beam, gamma radiation.  High core-to-clad ratios available for high efficiency bundles.  Click here for more information.

Chalcogenide IR-Glass Fiber (CIR Fiber)

Chalcognide InfraRed (CIR) glasses are the best As2S3-based material for fiber optics in the range of 2 – 6 um. CIR fibers transmit IR-radiation in the gap between silica fibers(0.2-2.4um) and Polycrystaline InfraRed (PIR) fibers (4-18um).  CIR fiber is drawn in core/clad structure with double polymer coating and characterized by a low optical loss and high flexibility.  The innovative glass purification process provides the attenuation spectra free from the OH absorption at 3 um.  Click here for more information.

Polycrystalline IR-Fibers (PIR Fiber)

Specialty fibers for the Mid-Infrared region has resulted in a unique product – Core / Clad Polycrystalline Infra-Red (PIR-) fibers. The PIR-fibers are non-toxic, very flexible, transparent across a broad spectral range 4 -18 um and capable for operating over the wide temperature range from 4K to 420K.  Click here for more information.

Plastic Optical Fiber (POF)

Cost effective alternatives to All Silica fibers.  Click here for more information.

Borosilicate Glass Fibers

FiberTech Optica’s borosilicate glass fibers transmit visible light typically from 380-1100nm. The fibers are usually small in diameter (<100um), with no buffer and a thin cladding.  Click here for more information.
