Frequently Asked Questions

Metal Coated Fibers are silica fibers coated with metal, such as aluminum or copper, that are designed for use in high temperature, vacuum, and harsh chemical environments.

The core material of Metal Coated Fibers is pure silica, with high or low OH- depending on the wavelength range.

The standard numerical aperture of Metal Coated Fibers is 0.22 ± 0.02, with available numerical apertures of 0.12 ± 0.02 and 0.26 ± 0.02.

Metal Coated Fibers can operate in temperatures ranging from -270°C to 400°C for Al and up to 600°C for Cu-alloy.

Metal Coated Fibers are used in high temperature environments, harsh chemical environments, nuclear radiation, high power laser delivery, medical applications, and soldered fiber bundles.
