Low OH concentration optimizes these fibers for use in the near-IR wavelengths. Biocompatibility features make these fibers ideal for laser surgery and other medical applications.

The all-silica base construction creates a high damage threshold and high-performance optical properties.

High temperature environments require the use of PYROCOAT® polyimide coating.
