The high-numerical aperture low-OH content of these fibers result in a large usage window. Low OH concentration is especially effective for using these fibers in near-IR spectroscopy applications.
For laser delivery, HCS® fiber coating preserves cladding modes through bends and distributes lost power over a greater area—lowering the probability of “hot spots.” PYRO options use PYROCOAT® coating only.
For high-temperature performance, we recommend PYROCOAT® polyimide coating. This coating also strips cladding modes for enhanced performance in sensing and spectroscopy applications.
