Fibre Optic Cables & Probes
The use of fibre optics as light guides allows a great modularity and flexibility in the setup of an optical measurement system.
Optical fibres can be made of many materials, such as plastic, glasses and silicates (SiO2). For high quality fibre optics, as used in spectroscopic applications, synthetic fused silica (amorphous silicon dioxide) is typically used, that can be intentionally doped with trace elements to adjust the optical properties of the glass.

What is spectroscopy, and what is a fibre optic spectrometer?
Optical spectroscopy is a technique for measuring light intensity in the UV, VIS, NIR and IR region, and a spectrometer is typically the device used to do this. Spectroscopic measurements are being used in many different applications, such as colour measurement, concentration determination of chemical components or electromagnetic radiation analysis to name just a few. Traditionally, it was typically necessary to take a sample of what ever medium you wanted to measure and measure it with a spectrometer in the lab. These days, progress in optical fibre technologies has revolutonised the spectroscopy business, and their use allow us to go right to the object being measured. Devices that make use of this technology are correctly classed as spectrometers, but more specifically, they're fibre optic spectrometers. Using this technique enables a truly unlimited number of applications in both the lab and field, with new applications being discovered everyday.
