Applications

Primarily selected for applications such as spectroscopy, medical diagnostics, medical technology, laser deliverysystems, and various others.

  1. Fiber type - UV = ArmD™ UV | WF = ArmD™ WF | WFGE = ArmD™ WFGE | HUV = ArmD™ HUV | HWF = ArmD™ HWF
  2. Standard core / cladding ratios - Core ø (μm) / Cladding ø (μm)
  3. Buffer - H = hard polymer buffer | No information = silicone buffer
  4. Colour - B = black | BL = blue | W = white | Y = yellow | R = red | G = green | No information = transparent
  5. Jacket material - A = acrylate jacket (no buffer) | F = PFA Fluon® | N = nylon jacket (silicone or hard polymer jacket) T= ETFE jacket (silicone or hard polymer buffer) | P = polyimide jacket (no buffer)
  6. Numerical aperture (NA) - 12 = 0,12 | 28 = 0,28 | No information = 0,22 (standard)
