Fiber Optics, or Optical Fibers, are often used in data transmission or light guide applications. Optical Fibers used in light guide applications transmit safe, no-heat light, which is ideal for medical, inspection, automotive, or display applications. A single Optical Fiber utilizes total internal reflection to transmit light, allowing bends along its path. Minimal light loss during transmission allows Optical Fibers to transmit light or data quickly over long distances.
Laser Optics are used in a wide range of laser instrumentation or laser applications, including beam steering or material processing. Laser Optics use specific substrates, coatings, or a combination of the two to provide superior performance at specific laser wavelengths or over a range of wavelengths.
Half-Ball lenses are ideal for applications such as fiber communication, endoscopy, microscopy, optical pick-up devices, and laser measurement systems.
Ball Lenses are glass spheres commonly used in fiber optic applications. Ball lenses are ideal for focusing light into optical fibers, or for fiber coupling.
