Optical Fibers

The optical fibers made for spectroscopy are made of quartz glass. There are 3 different kinds of fibers. The using depends on the spectral region cause of the different wavelength dependend transmission. For the UV/VIS-region there are fibers with an high concentration of OH (HOH). For the VIS/NIR-region fibers with low OH concentration are used. If you have very short wavelength (<215 nm) to transmit you have to use solarisation resistent fibers (SHOH). For mechanical protection the fibers outer tube can be done out of metall. Custom made fibers (length, configuration) can be produced also.
