Fiber optic probes for radial emission
The fiber optic probes for radial emission applications that we produce are optimized for use @1470 nm. This product is particularly suitable for phlebology and gynecology applications where a radial emission of the laser light is recommended.
Our fibers are USP Class VI certified, non-toxic and biocompatible. Standard product is using a 600 µm core all silica fiber. However different dimensions can be produced according to the medical procedure and the type of laser.
The probe is equipped with the Powershot SMA connector manufactured by SEDI-ATI. This connector is specially designed for power applications of disposable probes where cost issue is important. A free-standing ferrule with air gap around the fiber allows an excellent power handling and the assembly technique avoids any stress on the fiber itself.
The most efficient design is obtained by a specific shaping of the fiber end which is enclosed in a silica capillary. The result is an annular emission of the laser energy for homogenous action on the vein wall.
Ring fibers with a capillary assembly at the distal end are jacketed with a biocompatible material. This jacket has a cm marking to help visualize the fiber introduction in the vein.
