If a spectrometer is the heart of an Ocean Optics system, and its light source the lungs, then fibers and probes are the circulatory system – the conduits through which light travels to reach the extremities and bring life to the measurement of a sample. Our patch cords come in a variety of core sizes for optimizing throughput. Bifurcated fibers and splitters are Y-shaped assemblies for routing light from one location to two others. Fiber probes act as sampling accessories, often with built-in light routing. They allow direct measurements of liquids, powders, and flames, as well as solids.
