mid-infrared fibers

LVF offers a large range of fluoride optical fibers, including ZrF4 (fluorozirconate) and InF3 (fluoroindate) fibers designed for mid infrared applications.

  • ZrF4 (fluorozirconate) fibers transmit light from 0.3 µm up to 4.5 µm.
  • InF3 (fluoroindate) fibers transmit light from 0.3 µm up to 5.5 µm.
  • GeO2 (germanate) fibers are qualified for high power handling around 2.7–3.0 µm (Er:YAG and Er:YSSG medical lasers).

LVF fluoride fibers are the most transparent fibers on the market in the mid-infrared 2–5 µm band.
