StellarNet offers a variety of fiber optic cables for use with their compact and modular spectroscopy instrumentation. Fiber optic cables provide an easy way to transmit light without need for system alignment or attenuation of signal. Light can be easily transferred from a light source to a cuvette holder containing a sample then back to a spectrometer for detection.
Choose your diameter – Single strand, multimode fiber optic cables are available with SMA 905 connectors, ¼ inch diameter steel mono-coil armor with black PVC jacket. Sizes include 400, 600, or 1000µm core diameters. For StellarNet systems the 600um fiber diameter is most popular as it is robust enough to roll over in your lab chair yet provides high light signal to your spectrometer. 1000um diameter fiber provides the best signal strength yet can be fragile and should not be handled by undergraduates 🙂
Solarization Resistant options- Solarization resistant fibers (-SR) available for deep UV applications below 400nm available in all diameters.
VIS-NIR options are low OH fibers (400-2200 nm) are needed for VIS-NIR applications. They offer lowest possible internal light attenuation. Intended for applications with long fiber lengths, available in all diameters.
Standard lengths are 1 and 2 meters
Custom lengths are available with a minimum price of a 1 meter fiber (extra delivery time also)
Specialty fibers & connectors are available for various applications. Y-cables to couple 2 spectrometer systems, Y-bundled cables to couple 2 light sources, 1 to 3 splitter cables, and all types of custom fibers and connectors to meet your application.

Diverse medical technologies: How Compact Spectrometers are being used to develop health-related methods and devices
Earlier, I wrote a piece about how StellarNet customers are using compact spectrometers to tackle the multi-headed beast that is cancer. While cancer is a large problem, it is but one of many in the healthcare industry. Diseases need to be understood, treatments need...read more
