Optical fiber sensors and coatings for Radiation, Oil & Gas, Cryogenic, Acoustic/Seismic, and Chemical industries.
Typical telecommunications fiber is designed for benign environments in temperatures that range from -55°C to +85°C, degrading optically when used outside of this temperature range and when in certain environments with hydrogen, chemicals, or radiation. Due to these factors, special coatings are available to address a greater temperature range and to handle certain chemical environments. In addition, the glass chemistry must be modified to address environments with hydrogen or radiation.
Applications: Radiation (Nuclear and Aerospace), Oil & Gas, Cryogenic, Acoustic/Seismic and Chemical
