Lab-grade Patchcord Assembly


Our fluoride and chalcogenide infrared fiber patchcords are designed for applications in the NIR and mid-IR beyond 2100 nm, where standard low OH VIS-NIR fiber has increased absorbance.  ZBLAN heavy-metal fluoride fibers have excellent transmission to 4500 nm.  Chalcogenide fibers offer low loss and great flexibility from 2000 – 6000 nm. 


  • PVDF zip tube jacket
  • Standard hex-nut SMA connectors
  • Great for use in the lab and gentle handling environments
  • Also available in premium-grade on a custom basis
