he bare fibre is the medical probe with the most versatile application areas. It is ideal for almost all medical disciplines. The fibre plays an important role for example in surgery, dermatology, gynaecology, otorhinolaryngology, ophthalmology, photodynamic therapy, pneumology and urology.
It is decisive, which fibre tip (distal end) with the corresponding emission is used. Our customers can choose between flat, conical, ball and spherical fibre tips. Furthermore we also offer the bent bare fibre, a bare fibre with a bent fibre tip, for specific requirements. Quartz/ quarz fibres for the UV and IR fields are also available as required. Upon request the fibres can also be equipped with a hard clad. The fibre, just as – all other fibres, – can be prepared with various connector types (standard SMA 905 and free-
Depending on the requirements, the bare fibres are produced with a numerical aperture (NA) from NA 0.12 up to 0.37. The probe is suitable for various types of lasers and can be produced in the most diverse customized versions. Finally we offer the bare fibre with the flat tip not only as a disposable fibre, but also as a reusable medical product. Together with the fibre we provide the corresponding instructions for permissible reprocessing methods.
The tapered bare fibre has clear benefits for customers who couple into the fibre with a larger light diameter on the laser connector side than is required on the application side (distal end). This enables flexible use of laser appliances: On the one hand lasers designed for large 400/600/800/1000 µm fibres, and on the other hand lasers suitable for applications with 200 µm fibres. Excellent performance is achieved due to the taper, and sufficient optical energy is supplied on an extremely small spatial unit. More flexible handling of the probe and technical adaptation to the laser are of particular advantage. Taper technology is also possible for all other fibre types.
Possible product variants follow the bare fibre product range and comprise fibre core diameters of 200 µm, 400 µm, 600 µm, 800 µm and 1000 µm. Furthermore, all possible fibre ends are available: Ball Tip, Spherical Tip and Bent Tip.
In addition it is possible to equip the probe systems with an RFID chip including the required license which can be obtained from us (cf. page 32: RFID components). We of course also offer individual solutions.
