FBGS has finalized its R&D development of a DTG fiber with reduced cladding, resulting in an 80µm diameter.
The new fiber with DTGs offers some exciting opportunities compared to the standard 125µm DTG fibers. Because the fiber is thinner: (1) it is less invasive when embedded within laminate composite structures or textiles; (2) it requires less force to strain it which makes it more suited for acoustic sensors and hydrophones and (3) because it is more elastic in respect to its bending properties, it can be used in applications where small bend radii are required. The new fiber has been released as a Beta-product for the 1550nm window and is drawn with an Ormocer coating that brings the outer fiber diameter to about 114µm.
