specialty fibers

LVF offers the largest range of fluoride fibers in the world, including passive fibers and active fibers for applications ranging from the visible to the mid-infrared.

  • 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.
