Quartz/Quartz Fibers

Optical fibers for the spectral ranges UV-VIS-IR.

  • Solarization-optimized UV-fiber for as low as 180 nm available
  • Standard fibers for UV, VIS or IR (200 nm to 2200 nm) in several diameters on stock

Technical Features

  • Core diameter 50 µm to 2000 µm
  • Clad-to-core diameter ratio (CCDR) 1.05 to 1.4
  • Numerical Aperture (NA) typically 0.22 to 0.29 core to clad (±0.02, @635 nm); core to hard plastic clad up to 0.5
  • Components with certificate for biocompatibility according to ISO 10993
