There is a drawback to this particular application. The loss is high, so cable lengths are limited to 6-10 feet. However, there are times when a specialty illumination project or requirement is demanded, for example:
- Where the wavelengths are in the UV or NIR
- There are unique requirements for length (longer than 15 feet)
- Temperature (above 135 C or below -40C)
- Optical modification of the fiber optic input or output is required
In situations like this, XSOF™ applies specialty materials and components to find solutions to these more unique problems.
Typical borosilicate illumination applications and sources look similar to the pictures shown here.
