100 µm Multimode Radiation Resistant Fiber with High Temperature Acrylate
Nufern’s radiation resistant specialty multi-mode fibers are designed to operate for extended periods of time on low earth orbits, near and deep space, and in applications where risk of exposure to man-made radiation is great. As with the traditional Nufern MM fiber, these fibers are capable of withstanding extreme environments and large and fast temperature swings. Features include step index and graded index configurations, numerical apertures from 0.06 to 0.45 and core sizes from 10 μm to 700 μm. All fibers are available with a high temperature acrylate, silicone, or polyimide coating.
