Extreme Solarization Resistant Fibers are often used with light sources (e.g., HPX 2000 or DH 2000) with high intensity in deep UV region. UV radiation <300 nm degrades signal transmission in standard silica fibers, resulting in solarization (increased light absorption in the UV that can invalidate measurements). Solarization-resistant fiber assemblies use polyimide or aluminum buffers that mitigate the effects of UV degradation. Attenuation curves and fiber specifications are found under each option.
Resistance to UV effects-- polyimide or aluminum buffers mitigate UV transmission degradation
Jacketing options-- stainless steel BX
Variety-- assemblies available in different core diameters and lengths; custom options also available
Convenient handling-- precision SMA 905 connectors with extra-long knurled ferrules for easy manipulation
Robust-- great for field and industrial use, or other rough handling environments
