Assemblies Options

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

Multimode All-Silica (Low solarization, 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, sterilizable by ETO, e-beam, gamma radiation and made of bio compatible materials.  Ultra low OH fibers available.  Click here for more information.

Multimode 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.

ZBLAN 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.

Plastic Optical Fiber (POF)

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.
