|Optical fiber are fibers with one or more claddings surrounding the core material.
||Monofilament or Mandrel are thin fibers without a cladding material
Capillary tubes are fibers with a hole down the center
|Optical fiber can be made with outside diameters ranging from 25 - 1000+ microns.
||Monofilament can be made from a wide variety of materials and diameters. Diameters ranging from 25 - 1000+ microns.
Capillary tubing can be made from a
wide variety of materials, inside and outside diameters.
|A wide variety of materials can be used, some popular combinations are below
||CUSTOM SIZES AND MATERIAL
||Custom Capillary Tubing
|Core PMMA, Clad fluoropolymer NA=0.63
|Core PS, Clad THV, NA=0.84
|Core PS, Clad PMMA NA=0.56
||Medical Capillary Tubing
|Core PMMA, Clad fluoropolymer NA=0.5
|PS has higher optical loss and is used mainly for red light.
