OFS Short Wavelength Photonic Fibers are differentiated by operating wavelength. These fibers perform in a wide variety of applications, some requiring visible light. For especially tight bend applications or in gyroscopic coils, choose the reduced-diameter micro version.

Light sources for these fibers can be LEDs, laser diodes, visible lamps, or gas lasers.
