    Polycrystalline IR-Fiber Cables

    • High transmittance from 4 μm up to 18μm
    • High flexibility and no toxicity
    • Suitable for CO2- laser power delivery up to 50W CW
    • Low attenuation at 10.6μm (0.1-0.5 dB/m)
    • Standard fiber diameters from 0.3 to 1.0mm
    • No aging effect

    art photonics development of specialty fibers for the Mid-Infrared region has resulted in a unique product - Core / Clad Polycrystalline Infra-Red
    (PIR-) fibers. The PIR-fibers are non-toxic, very flexible, transparent across a broad spectral range 4 -18 μm and capable for operating over the wide
    temperature range from 4K to 420K.

    Applications:

    • Spectroscopy Probes for Gases & Liquids
    • Flexible Radiometry
    • Flexible IR-imaging Systems
    • Power delivery for CO & CO2 - Lasers
