EPIC Workshop hosted by DIAMOND SA
Speciality Fibres for Harsh Environment
The requirements imposed by non-telecom applications have resulted of a new subset of custom-tailored optical fibres commonly known as “specialty fibres”. Their material and structure properties are modified to render them with new properties and characteristics. The manufacturing, application fields, as well as connectors to operate under the desired environments have been discussed during a workshop organized by EPIC - the European Photonics Industry Consortium, and were hosted by DIAMOND. The workshop was a huge success and about 40 persons from all over Europe attended the event.
