Medical Fibers

High performance medical fibers for surgical, imaging and spectroscopic applications

OCT, urology, lithotripsy, vein treatment, surgical, biocompatible, radiation, sterile, EtO, dispersion control, tefzel, polyimide, pure silica core

Coherent’s medical fibers are designed for a wide variety of surgical, imaging and spectroscopic applications. Fibers are available in a range of sizes, from large core/clad geometries for high power delivery to small form factor fibers for minimally invasive applications. Additionally, our OCT fibers offer exceptional uniformity, superior dispersion control, core/clad concentricity, and bend insensitivity for high definition imaging and spectroscopy. For precision cosmetic and surgical applications, our medical beam delivery fibers employ Coherent’s flat top fiber technology for homogeneous beam profiles.
