New Generation Of Fiber Bundles
Innovative CFB technology provides a number of advantages for high power, high NA and non-cizrcular active end applications.
In this brochure you will find schematic diagrams and photos of real assemblies and refraction index profile diagrams. We describe the results of research into different end-treatment technologies and provide graphs showing changes in transmission depending on the numerical aperture (NA) at which the light gets coupled at the bundle end.
The following fiber bundle end-treatment technologies are broken down in detail:
Glued-end bundles (GB)
Hexagon fused-end bundles (HFB)
Clad fused bundles (CFB)
Monolith fused bundles (MFB)
This leaflet presents AgI/Ag hollow core fiber for 10.6µm wavelength for medical and industrial applications. The technology for mass production of new fiber was developed in-house by Lightguide, and we are receiving more and more positive feedback from the market about this innovative material.
We have developed a new fiber for DUV applications, where the defects of solarization (also called photodarkening) in the material during UV exposure become the main reason for transmission decrement in the fiber. The new fiber is hydrogen-loaded, while hermetical carbon coating ensures that hydrogen stays firmly trapped in the glass material of the fiber. The hydrogen starts to react with defects immediately after their appearance. During chemical reactions, defects are transformed and OH groups are released. The new fiber provides superior transmission at 190 to 250nm.
