Introducing to Microstructure Optical Fiber (MOF) …

Microstructure optical fibers (MOFs), the fibers that incorporate air holes running along their length, offer new optical properties as compared to conventional fibers.

The use of microstructure air holes around the fiber core have enabled new capabilities that have and will have an impact on many fields, from metrology to medicine. Microstructure or holey fibers and photonic crystal fibers can guide light either through total internal reflection between a solid silica core and air cladding or through a photonic bandgap (i.e., via diffraction) created by a periodicity in a microstructure cladding.

Capillary Plate (CP) >
– Fibers are hollow on the FCP, which allow fluid or gas pass through
– Hole size start from 5um
– Hole Length to Hole Diameter ratio up to 200 (L/D ratio)

Fiber Optic Microwell (FOM) >
– Fibers are partially hollow, forming millions of microwells. (Object will be entrapped inside the hollow fiber)
– Microwell Diameter start from 6um
– Coating available on the wall of microwell

Polycapillary Optics (PO) >
– Focusing Xray to ten-micron level focal spot
– Turn Divergent Beams into Collimating Beams
– Channel size as low to 10um, open area ratio up to 65%

MicroChannel Plate (MCP) >
– High gain: MCPs are capable of amplifying signals by several orders of magnitude.
– Fast response time: MCPs can respond to signals within nanoseconds.
– Low noise factor: MCPs are usually designed to have low noise factor
– Variety of geometries: MCPs come in a variety of geometries like circular, square, and – rectangular.
