Overview

optical fiber for nuclear environment

Coatings for harsh environment

For more than a decade iXblue has developed a unique know-how in the design of optical fibers in radiative environments such as nuclear power plants, high energy physics labs, nuclear waste repository sites and even all the way into space. iXblue develops and maintains a comprehensive product line of fibers designed to fit many of such applications. Our fibers can be used for data transmission, sensing or experiment monitoring.

More fibers are available on stock and we have furthermore the ability to custom design your fiber based on your specific application. Do not hesitate to contact us with your specific technical requirements.
