Optical Fiber Assemblies for UV Applications
Nov 2006
Ocean Optics Inc.Request Info
DUNEDIN, Fla., Nov. 14, 2006 -- Xtreme solarization-resistant (XSR) optical fiber assemblies for spectroscopy use a proprietary process that provides enhanced ultraviolet (UV) transmission (signal will transmit to 180 nm) and remarkable resistance to UV degradation, said manufacturer Ocean Optics.

oceanxsr.jpgWell-suited for deep-UV (<300 nm) applications, XSR fiber comes in several core diameter sizes and lengths, and couples to Ocean Optics spectrometers and accessories via SMA 905 connectors. XSR optical fiber assemblies are available in core diameters of 235 microns and 455 microns, in standard lengths of 25 centimeters, 1 meter and 2 meters, with custom lengths also available. A 6-around-1 reflection probe version is available for reflection and fluorescence from solid surfaces, or backscattering and fluorescence in liquids and powders. Shorter-length assemblies are recommended for applications requiring maximum UV throughput.

UV radiation below 300-nm degrades transmission in standard silica fibers, resulting in solarization (increased light absorption in the UV fiber that blocks transmission and can invalidate data). For such applications, premium-grade XSR Xtreme optical fiber assemblies are a viable alternative to less effective solarization-resistant fibers, Ocean Optics said. Each assembly has aluminum coating, stainless-steel BX jacketing and high-quality SMA 905 connectors.
