Fiber Optic Cables

Features

Fiber Optic Cables

Signal stability and low noise in remote spectroscopy depend upon fiber optics with high transmission. Guided Wave spectroscopic grade fiber optic cables have very high transmission for minimum signal loss.

  • Polyimide coating and a silicone based buffer protect the fiber
  • Patented buffer also contains a light blocking layer to reduce stray light
  • UV fiber is solarization resistant
