Polymicro Technologies, a subsidiary of Molex Inc., has announced a broad spectrum optical fibre with a low-OH pure silica core that shows reduced content of UV defects and other UV absorption centres. According to the company, its proprietary FBPI fibre leverages the benefits and eases the limitations of standard optical fibres. Boasting improved transmission properties over a much wider spectral range, the FBPI fibre is available in a range of densities and can be produced in core diameters from 50-600m, added the company.

In the near-infrared (NIR) wavelength region to beyond 2100nm, Polymicro FBPI fibre attenuation is equivalent to standard NIR fibres having a low-OH silica core and F-doped cladding. Comparable to solarisation properties of standard UV optimised high-OH fibres with high radiation resistance, FBPI fibre features UV transmission down to 200nm, the firm indicated.

Many spectroscopic applications require high performance optical fibres that transmit light over a broad spectrum and demonstrate minimal focal ratio degradation. Unlike standard optical fibres which are limited by transmission spectral range, Polymicro said its FBPI optical fibre transmits a wider range of wavelengths with relative uniformity across the wavelength range.

FBPI broadband optical fibre is geared for high performance spectroscopy applications, including optical fibre testing, environmental monitoring, gas phase measurements, precision surgical and industrial lasers and high performance gas or liquid chromatography.
