Fiber Optics

Fiber optics is mainly known for its use for communication purposes. Process industry, production and life science are other areas where fiber optics makes a difference. 

Fiber optics is basically a thin, flexible and transparent fiber normally made by glass (silica) or polymer used to transport light signals.

Fiber optics offers unique features:

  • High bandwidth
  • Immune to interference from electromagnetic fields
  • Allows distributed sensing
  • Biocompatible
  • Intrinsically safe - no electricity at the sensor
  • Can withstand harsh environments (temperatures, ambient)
  • Very small and light-weight

RISE Acreo has been active within fiber optics since the early 1990s. Our expertise covers the entire range of Fiber Optic technologies from manufacturing of specialty fiber, through designing and making components and fiber optic sensors, to complete system solutions with fiber optics as an integral part.

Expertise and lab facilities at your disposal

We run a full fledged Specialty Fiber Laboratory, developing unique optical fibers for diverse applications. In our Fiber Bragg gratings laboratory, we make FBGs from visible wavelengths far up in the near infrared. Our applications labs are well equipped and perfectly suited for challenging R&D.
