Fiber Optics in Very High Magnetic Fields

Protection from exposure to high magnetic field requires non-magnetic materials. By jacketing the fiberoptic cable in non-metallic materials, and by constructing the sensor tip from non-metallic or non-magnetic materials, PHILTEC sensors can be configured to perform measurements in very high magnetic fields. Successful applications to 12 Tesla have been made. PHILTEC recently delivered this sensor: … Continue reading

Fiber Optic Displacement Sensor for Vacuum and High Magnetic Field

Problem Quartz fibers have excellent transmission over long lengths, but they are very expensive, so usually cost prohibitive. A customer recently asked for a model D171 sensor with 45-meter length for displacement measurements in vacuum and high magnetic field. Solution PHILTEC devised a 3-piece cost saving system, where only 10% of the model D171 probe … Continue reading
