Optical Fibers
Thank you
for taking time to visit Fiberguide Industries during your visit to BIOS/Photonics West 2014.
Fiberguide Industries manufactures over 500 different specialty optical fiber part numbers to meet the needs of our
customers. We specialize in optical fiber used for photonics applications, power delivery and sensing, and we also offer
data communications fiber. Our high performance coatings enable our fibers to operate at extreme temperatures and
survive in harsh environments. Our standard fiber offering is summarized below. Contact us for any non-standard needs.
All Silica Fiber
Anhydroguide (AFS) & Superguide (SFS)
Silica Core / Silica Clad / Polymer or Metal Coated Fiber
Multimode, Step Index
Fiberguide’s SFS and AFS fibers are primarily used in photonics applications where
individual or bundled large core (>50µm) multimode fibers are needed for the transmission
of optical energy. These fibers can be coated with a variety of polymers or metalized, for
extreme temperature performance.

Silica Core / Silica Clad / Hard Polymer Buffer Coated / Polymer Outer Coated Fiber
Multimode, Step Index
Fiberguide’s SFSH & AFSH fibers are similar to the SFS & AFS detailed above, except there
is an added layer of hard polymer on top of the silica cladding. This hard coat serves as
stable buffer layer that ensures a sufficient bond between the silica cladding and the
polymer outer coating, making these fibers the ideal choice for a variety of medical
applications.

Multimode, Step Index
Fiberguide’s SPCH & APCH fibers feature a hard polymer cladding instead of a silica cladding.
The hard cladding enables a higher NA (0.37) than a silica cladding, and reduces cost. Hard Clad
fibers are the ideal choice for disposable medical products.

Fiberguide’s SPC & APC fibers feature a polymer cladding. This polymer cladding
enables a NA of 0.37, but it differs from the hard polymer cladding above because the

Silica Core / Silica Clad
Multimode, Step Index
Fiberguide’s Solarguide fiber is hydrogen infused to improve long-term attenuation stability
at short UV wavelengths (190nm – 230nm). Solarguide fibers are the ideal choice for UV
Spectroscopy, Lithography, Excimer Laser Systems, and UV curing applications that use
Deuterium Lamps or other UV sources below 230nm.

Fiberguide’s AGI fibers feature a graded index profile instead of a step index profile. These
fibers are primarily used in data transmission applications where more bandwidth is needed
than step index fibers can offer. These fibers are available with Acrylate coatings and also
high performance Polyimide, Aluminum, and Gold coatings that allow them to exceed the
temperature performance levels of standard fibers.

Optical Fibers
A HALMA COMPANY
Fiberguide’s Single Mode Fibers are used in data transmission applications as well as
photonics applications where a single optical path, or mode, is desired. These fibers are
available with Acrylate coatings and also high performance Polyimide, Aluminum, and
Gold coatings that allow them to exceed the temperature performance levels of standard
fibers.

High Power Fiber UniClad Fiber
Silica Core / Silica Clad / Polymer Coated Fiber
Multimode, Step Index
Fiberguide’s Universal Clad, or UniClad, optical fibers are Silica Core/Silica Clad/Polymer Coated fibers
designed for high power transmission and other applications where a large cladding relative to the
core is beneficial. These fibers feature a fixed 500μm cladding diameter, with a 100μm – 400μm core
size, making laser alignment and splicing easier. The larger 600μm and 800μm core sizes use
proportionally larger cladding.

High Temperature Fiber
Fiberguide Industries offers metalized optical fibers using our proprietary manufacturing processes. These high
performance coatings enable our fibers to operate at extreme temperatures and survive in harsh environments. Our
standard metalized fiber offering is detailed below and on the accompanying spec sheets. Please contact us for any nonstandard fiber needs: Custom Core / Cladding Sizes, Custom NAs, Narrow / Broad Wavelength Transmission, etc.
Gold Coated Fiber

Silica Core / Silica Clad / Gold Coated Fiber
Fiberguide’s Gold Coated Fibers are designed to achieve the widest temperature range
(-269°C to +700°C / -452°F to +1292°F) of any optical fiber on the market. This, combined
with excellent corrosion resistance, and the fiber’s ability to be soldered or brazed,
makes it the ideal fiber for many high temperature applications such as turbine flame
monitoring, oil and gas down-hole sensing, and high vacuum or pressure applications.
Available in the following fiber series. (See above for more detail.)

Silica Core / Silica Clad / Aluminum Coated Fiber
Fiberguide’s Aluminum Coated Fibers are designed for a wide temperature range (-269°C
to +400°C / -452°F to +752°F) and superior strength (> 100kpsi). This allows for long life
at extended stress levels in applications that require tight bends. Also, the strong
chemical bond between the silica cladding and the aluminum enables direct termination
without pistoning. This bond also makes aluminum coating the ideal choice to preserve
deep UV performance in Fiberguide’s Solarguide product family.
Available in the following fiber series. (See above for more detail.)
