art photonics offers standard IR-fiber cables based on Chalcogenide Infra-Red (CIR-) Core/Clad fibers for a wide range of applications aiming at transmission in the spectral range 1 – 6.5 µm. Design of standard CIR-fiber cables embraces 2 connector options and 3 types of sheathing. Moreover, a line of customized assemblies can be designed according to the special customer’s requests – contact us if you need for non-standard cables: there is a possibility of customized design using single-mode (small core) fibers or special CIR-fibers for a broader spectral range, etc.
