FBGS Technologies GmbH - a leading supplier of advanced fiber-optic sensing solutions and components based on Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) technology - has secured a single-digit million growth financing.
In general, the optical fiber can withstand a tighter bend radius (R) before a permanent damage or breaking occurs, if its outer diameter is smaller. For example;
125 µm (cladding)/195 µm (ORMOCER®-coated)
R > 6 mm to keep the surface strain level below 1%
80 µm (cladding)/125 µm (ORMOCER®-coated)
R > 4 mm to keep the surface strain level below 1%
