Frequently Asked Questions

The features of the fiber include hermetic and sterilizable, directly solderable onto coating for vacuum feedthroughs and laser diode pigtailing, radiation resistant, low outgassing of volatile components, and resistant to organic solvents.

The fiber is typically used under extreme conditions such as aircraft, missile, rocket, turbine & jet engine monitoring, radiation, caustic & corrosive environments, material fatigue sensing applications, high power laser delivery systems, ultra high vacuum applications, and semiconductor manufacturing.

The manufacturing process utilized in the production of the fiber results in a superior strength optical fiber, with improved long term reliability especially under extreme bend radius applications. Unlike polymers, metal coatings such as Aluminum have very low outgassing of volatile components.

The Aluminum coating enables the fiber to be used in applications of a wider temperature range and offers excellent protection at extended stress levels. It also provides the user with the ability to terminate the fiber directly onto the coating, supporting a hermetically sealed assembly.

The fiber has a wide operating temperature range from cryogenic up to 400° C.
