Why Use Glass Fiber Optics?
- Transmit light and images
- Glass optical fibers are able to carry light into confined spaces, or transmit images out of confined spaces. Glass fiber can be used in high-temperature environments.
- Glass optical fibers are bendable and flexible due to their small diameters. This properties allows them to be routed into tight areas.
- Heat Resistant
- Temperature resistant up to 350 ℃ (glued light guides), and much more than 350℃ (heat-fused light guides).
- Resistance to Electrical Interference
- Glass does not normally transmit or conduct an electrical charge. Glass fibers can be used in electrically noisy environments without concern as electrical noise will not affect fibers.
- Geometric Variations of the End Configurations
- A wide variety of bundle end geometry available by arranging the fiber alignment of entrance end and exit end of the fiber bundle.
- Divergence and Convergence of Light
- A bundle of fibers can be split into two or more fiber bundles.
- Fiber Bundle Randomization to create homogenous lighting
- Fibers can be randomized (interweaved/braided) to make the output more uniform.
- Well-balanced Lighting made of Blended Fibers
- Blending optical fibers with different numerical apertures will provide well balanced lighting regardless of distance.
