EAST GRANBY, CT –February 4, 2014– Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers and amplifiers, and fiber optic gyro coils, announced today it is further expanding its product offerings by introducing the NuVIEW™ family of fibers. NuVIEW™ fibers are the first of Nufern’s fibers optimized for optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging and spectroscopy. Building on their strong fiber sensor knowledge and experience, Nufern introduces the NuVIEW™ line of fibers as they expand their offerings to the medical market.
The NuVIEW™ fiber family includes two fibers, 780-OCT and 1060-OCT which are designed for 780nm and 1060nm operation, respectively. Both fibers have been optimized for 260nm (±130nm) of functional wavelength range, expanding the operating range of OCT applications. In addition, both fibers specify the dispersion and its value will be reported on every spool shipped. The 1060-OCT fiber offers the tightest dispersion specification in the industry which ensures improved image sharpness in OCT applications. This fiber is optimized for the next generation high resolution dual wavelength OCT applications. The 780-OCT fiber offers excellent performance and its repeatability and reproducibility will enable it to be a drop-in replacement for existing fibers currently on the market.
Bryce Samson, VP of Business Development, states, “Nufern continues to expand its fiber product line and the introduction of the NuVIEW™ fibers demonstrates our commitment to our customer base to expand into markets where they need solutions. We continue to offer the broadest range of specialty optical fibers and these two new products optimized for OCT applications keep Nufern at the cutting edge of today’s developing technology.”
