Linear Keyed SMA Patch Cords
Fiber assemblies with keyed SMAs connect to the spectrometer with a well-defined and repeatable orientation. Our linear keyed SMA patch cords convert a bundle of fibers at one end into a linear format at the keyed SMA end for matching to the spectrometer slit. This configuration is typically only more efficient when using a spectrometer with a tall detector, such as the QE Pro, Maya, NIRQuest, or Ventana optical benches.
Infrared Fiber Patch Cords
At wavelengths beyond 2100 nm, infrared fiber materials like fluoride or chalcogenide offer lower transmission through the MIR.
