Avantes fibers

Avantes provides a wide choice of optical fibers. All of them are multi-mode fibers with a fiber diameter of 8 µm to 1000 µm. The core consists of silicon dioxide. The following core diameters are available:

  • 8 µm (only for IR fibers, 200 – 800 nm)
  • 50 µm (only for UV or IR fibers, 200 – 800 nm)
  • 100 µm (broadband fibers, 250 – 2500 nm)
  • 200 µm (broadband fibers, 250 – 2500 nm)
  • 400 µm (broadband fibers, 250 – 2500 nm)
  • 600 µm (broadband fibers, 250 – 2500 nm)
  • 800 µm (only for UV or IR fibers, 350 – 2500 nm)
  • 1000 µm (only for UV or IR fibers, 350 – 2500 nm)

The fiber length can be selected in meters, standard lengths are 1m and 2m.

There are three possibilities for flexible metal sheathing:

  • BX: Stainless steel
  • ME: chrome-plated brass
  • MS: metal-silicone

Optical fibers and probes are available in five basic designs:

  • FC: Standard fiber
  • FCB: Y-fiber
  • FCx: multi-furcated fibre
  • FCR: Reflection probe
  • FDP: Immersion probe

Most fibers are offered for a wide wavelength range from 250 nm to 2500 nm (UVIR). For wavelengths <250 nm, pre-solarization (PRESOL) is recommended to prevent aging in the first hours of operation. SMA or FC/PC connections are available.

The following additional options are also available:

  • SR or PRESOL: UV-resistant
  • HT: high temperature resistant up to 200°C
