Advancing industry innovation with specialty optical fibers

Specialty optical fibers are rapidly moving beyond niche applications.
FIGURE 1. Three-dimensional shape sensing promises to facilitate procedures such as coronary angioplasty with highly accurate GPS-like guidance provided by feedback from the optical fiber, which exhibits strain when bent; this application is enabled by a highly complex optical fiber such as the spun seven-core SM-7C 1500(6.1/125).

Shown are an end-face image of Fibercore's spun multicore fiber, SSM-7C 1500(6.1/125; a) and a diagram of the cores taking a helical path down the length of the fiber with FBGs distributed along the length of each core (b). The multicore fiber end-face image was measured on an IFA-100 fiber index profiler.

Fiber Sensing: Medical fiber-optic sensors offer haptics, 3D shape sensing, and pressure sensing

Moving beyond conventional fiber-optic sensing, novel types and configurations of sensing fibers provide new capabilities for minimally invasive surgery.

FIGURE 1. A near-infrared pulsed laser signal is sent down an optical fiber, creating Rayleigh, Brillouin, and Raman backscattering—all of which are used for different types of distributed sensing, as seen in this spectral schematic. Brillouin and Raman scattering occur via the Stokes and anti-Stokes processes.

Photonics Products: Specialty Fibers: Fibers for sensing extend their reach

Optical fibers used for sensing can measure temperature, strain, pressure, sound, electrical current, and even the 3D shape of the fiber itself.
