The focus of the work was to model extreme conditions that optical fibers may encounter in medical applications. Three commercially available fibers were examined. A battery of tests were completed analyzing how well each fiber withstood exposure to extreme heat and humidity, multiple autoclave cycles, extended water soak, and immersion in organic solvents. Key properties of polyimide-coated optical fibers, un-aged and exposed to various harsh environments, were investigated. Dr. Stolov commented that "The results of the work will certainly be of interest to engineers who are either evaluating or thinking of evaluating polyimide-coated fibers for their medical application."

OFS SPD will exhibit and showcase its line of optical fiber, cable, and assemblies for the medical market at the BiOS Tradeshow, January 21st-22nd.
