The Optran® HUV and Optran® HWF fibres with a hard polymer sheath are characterised by high numerical apertures for a wide range of applications from long-range lighting to photodynamic therapy. This high-quality fiber features easy termination without bulb effect and is a cost-effective alternative to quartz/quartz fibers. CeramOptec® in cooperation with Ceram Optec SIA offers a selection of different types and sizes of sleeves as well as individually designed products and sizes according to your specifications.
