Solarization Effects

Ultraviolet radiation below 300 nm degrades transmission in silica fibers, resulting in solarization (increased light absorption in the fiber that occurs over time and impacts data). For applications below 300 nm, we recommend solarization-resistant assemblies.

XSR Fibers for High Transparency and Durability

Xtreme solarization-resistant (XSR) optical fiber and probe assemblies for spectroscopy are manufactured using a proprietary process for enhanced UV transmission (signal will transmit to 180 nm) and remarkable resistance to UV degradation, making it ideal for deep-UV applications (<300 nm). Ocean Optics is the only spectroscopy manufacturer to offer XSR Fiber.
