Polymicro Technologies (Lisle, IL) has successfully developed a broad spectrum optical fiber with a low -OH pure silica core that demonstrates significantly reduced content of UV defects and other UV absorption centers. Polymicro’s proprietary FBPI fiber leverages the benefits and mitigates the limitations of standard optical fibers. Features include:

  • A range of densities and can be produced in core diameters from 50-600 μm.
  • Ultra-violet (UV) transmission down to 200 nm.
  • A wider range of wavelengths with relative uniformity across the wavelength range.
