Rugged optical fiber that resists the effects of ultraviolet solar radiation introduced by Armadillo SIA

Sept. 16, 2022
The optical fiber has a hermetic carbon layer, low numerical aperture expansion, and optical stability in the 190-to-1200 nanometer spectral range.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Armadillo SIA in Sunnyvale, Calif., is introducing Optran UV NSS Fiber to provide deep-ultraviolet solarization resistance in semiconductor technology, laser delivery systems, spectroscopy, and medical technology.

The optical fiber features a hermetic carbon layer, low numerical aperture expansion, and superior optical stability while operating in the UVC spectral range from 190 to 1200 nanometers.

The high-solarization-resistance fibers resist the effects of ultraviolet radiation are available in any numerical aperture value from 0.12 to 0.30 and can be customized on request.

Core diameters are available from 90 to 1000 microns. Composed of biocompatible materials, the operating temperature range of the silica/silica optical fibers is -190 to 150 degrees Celsius.
