Do-It-Yourself Fibers

Maximum Flexibility

If you need the flexibility to change the length or connector on your fiber at a moment’s notice, our Do-It-Yourself fiber products may be for you.  They allow you to configure your own fiber as a temporary or permanent assembly, and are perfect for:

  • New product development
  • Sensor research
  • Field or industrial use
  • Environments that foul or damage the fiber tip

Straight off the spool

Purchase the same high quality unjacketed bulk optical fiber we use in our fiber assemblies.

Fiber Type Wavelength Range Core Sizes Available
VIS-NIR low OH fiber 400 – 2100 nm 50 – 1000 μm
UV-VIS high OH fiber 300 – 1100 nm 50 – 1000 μm
SR solarization-resistant 200 – 1100 nm 200 – 600 μm

Or try our Fiber Tinkerer Kit, an assortment of randomly selected UV-VIS and VIS-NIR optical fibers.

All’s well that ends well

Our Fiber Termination Kit contains all the tools and supplies you need to cut and terminate your optical fibers, including an assortment of connectorsstandard SMA connectors.  If you run out of SMA connectors, you can purchase more in connector kits of 10, or have us custom-drill an SMA or FC connector to your exact size.

If you don’t want to commit to epoxying the fiber in place, our bare fiber adapter kit allows you to simply hold the fiber securely in an SMA connector.  Additional connect-and-release adapter chucks are available.
