Leading the Way in Long-Term Performance

For long-term performance, PowerLightGuide all silica fiber optic bundles, fused-end bundles, and assemblies set the standard. Tested for well over 40,000 continuous, unfiltered hours, our PowerLightGuide bundles exhibit level, steady transmission at 95 % of the original input!

Traditionally, bundle transmission level has been limited by NA and the packing factor of the active fiber core area. However, in PowerLightGuide bundles, CeramOptec's® Optran UVNSS (UV Non-Solarising-Stabelized) fibers are fused to eliminate inter-fiber spaces - without the need for epoxy and its inherent limiting properties. While maintaining the fibers' NA, CeramOptec's® PowerLightGuide fused-end bundles typically increase transmission by 50 %! Used in applications with temperatures as high as 1500° C, PowerLightGuides are the most advanced fiber bundles available today.

A Solid Solution for UV Spectroscopy and Liquid Light Guides

PowerLightGuide fused-end bundles offer a distinct advantage over liquid light guides because they offer exceptional throughput for wavelengths ranging from 160 to 1200 nm - without solarization. Unlike liquid light guides, our new PowerLightGuides are available in unlimited lengths and will not leak or deteriorate over time.

Our ability to integrate high NA (0.28 and 0.37), fused ends, and other technologies allows bundle transmission to typically be 50 % higher than any other manufacturer of silica UV fiber products.
