Mid InfraRed Chalcogenide and Polycrystalline Fiber Optic Bundles

Main features:

  • Multispectral Fiber Bundles in the broad spectral range: from 0.2 to 18µm
  • Fiber bundles contain up to thousands of optical fibers
  • Custom fiber arrangement
  • High and Low temperature special design
  • Standard or custom connectors and ferrules
  • Splitting light from light source into several channels
  • Combining light from several sources
  • Reshaping of light beam cross section

art photonics GmbH development of specialty fibers for the Mid-IR range has resulted in a unique product – Chalcogenide InfraRed (CIR-) fibers. Chalcogenide glasses (As₂ S₃) transmit IR-radiation in the spectral range of 1.1 – 6μm. Our CIR fibers are drawn in core/clad structure with double polymer coating and characterized by low total optical losses and low absorption peaks over mentioned spectral range.
High flexibility & high transmission of our Mid-IR fibers allowed producing commercial fiber bundles & convertors for Mid-IR applications for spectral range from 1.5µm up to 18 µm.
