Fiber Optic Light Guides are used to transmit illumination provided by fiber optic illuminators for a number of imaging or microscopy applications. Fiber Optic Light Guides interface with illuminators to transfer light to one of several adapter heads that transmit light in a usable manner. Fiber Optic Light Guides are available in several varieties including backlights or ring lights. Fiber Optic Light Guides offer the benefits of numerous illumination products with only one light source making them cheap, effective alternatives to many other illuminators.
Edmund Optics offers a wide range of Fiber Optic Light Guides suited for many illumination needs. Rigid Fiber Optic Light Guides are able to maintain a set position to allow additional operations during an application. Non-rigid light guides possess superior flexibility allowing for improved maneuverability for tight or delicate applications. Multiple headed light guides are also available for applications requiring more than one illumination source.
