High-Purity Glass Optical Fibers

February 23, 2012

 

"This company has launched PURAVIS™ high-purity glass optical fibers, which can reportedly provide superior properties over existing glass fibers. The glass optical fibers, which can be used for medical and industrial use, offer outstanding transmission of white light; according to the company, an increase of up to 10% can be achieved by using the proper raw materials. Due to the lower color shift, illuminated objects reportedly retain their natural color, even if the fibers are used in long light guides, making the glass fibers appropriate for medical applications such as endoscopy and surgical microscopy.
