Fused Silica Fibres in Mid-Infrared Range Lasers

The use of hollow-core fused silica fibres has assisted the development of lasers in the mid-infrared spectral range.                 The mid-infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum ranges between wavelengths of between 2 and 5 microns (micrometres). This is the wavelength range of radiation emitted by heart-seeking missiles, active…

Fused Silica in Multidirectional Solar Panel Manufacture

Fused silica in solar panels makes their orientation less vital. There has always been one clear rule for anyone installing rooftop solar panels: point them in the direction where they can capture the greatest amount of sunlight. For people living in the Northern Hemisphere this means pointing the panel to the south; for those in…
