Robust optical fibers
May 2007OFSRequest Info
Optical fibers with hard clad silica fiber coating from OFS Specialty Photonics Div. now are available, and they can withstand severe bends during power. The coating provides a robust and reliable fiber that can endure the high laser power levels typical in existing and emerging medical procedures. They protect against damage that often can occur in fibers when laser energy escapes the core into the cladding or when energy in the cladding affects the secondary coating.
