The University of Sydney quotes ALPhANOV in the realization of UV-compatible fiber cords


ALPhANOV had the honor of being quoted in the scientific article published in OSA Publishing, " Towards fully commercial, UV-compatible fiber patch cords".

In this article, the University of Sydney describes their methods for producing ultraviolet (UV) compatible optical-fiber patch-cords, with stable long-term transmission, at powers up to 200 mW. These commercial fibers are compatible with a wide variety of demanding scientific or industrial applications, such as biology or metrology. For the design of these patch-cords, the Sydney team relied on ALPhANOV's know-how in connectorizing and interfacing a PCF LMA-PM-10 fiber from NKT Photonics. A service that APHANOV has been developing and offering for more than 8 years to their customers around the world.
