Ultra low attenuation in infrared optical fibre

Share this on social media:

IRphotonics has achieved the lowest reported attenuation for a commercial grade multi-mode infrared optical fibre.

This technological first represents a significant milestone toward the company's goal of enabling next generation infrared optical systems for medical, defense and spectroscopy applications.

Daniel Lacroix, VP operations of IRphotonics, said: ‘A customer requested a long ultra-low loss fiber with less than 3 dB/km at 3.0 µm for a remote spectroscopy application in the chemical processing industry.  Our detailed understanding of Infrared glasses and optical fibers as well as our unique manufacturing process allowed us to achieve these very rigorous specifications. It is a major step forward for the whole industry.’
