Polymicro Technologies, LLC Showcases Improved FDP Optical Fiber for Deep UV Applications at SPIE BiOS/Photonics West
Jan 27 14
Polymicro Technologies, LLC showcase the recently announced improvements to its FDP optical fiber at SPIE BiOS/Photonics West, February 1, 2014 to February 6, 2014, booth 8323/323. The latest enhancements improve solarization resistance of the fiber in deep UV applications (190 -- 325 nm). Polymicro silica core optical FDP fiber features ultra high UV transmission and ultra low UV solarization, with superior radiation resistance. Operating down to 190 nm with excellent deep UV solarization resistance characteristics, FDP fiber has become a fiber of choice for applications in the deep UV region. The new FDP fiber delivers greater solarization resistance to sustain transmission longer, while minimizing damage to the fiber. For applications in the deep UV region, the effects of high levels of UV radiation cause fiber and transmission deterioration. Fibers typically lose transmission after several hours. Delivering dimensional control and tight tolerances, Polymicro FDP optical fibers offer a range of options, including custom core sizes, coatings, buffers and assemblies.
