F10001V Fiber Optic Index Matching Gel 0.4ozPart Number: F1-0001V
F1001V Fiber Optic Index Matching Gel, 0.4oz volume. Use for fiber optic applications such as crimp connectors and fiber optic test kits that use bare fiber, which have two pieces of fiber butt up against each other
At this point you may have an an air gap between the two fibers. If light were to enter this gap, it would be bent exiting one fiber, and bent again entering the other fiber due to the different indexes of refraction. This index matching gel helps reduce the differences between the core and the air gap between the other core.
Furthermore, this index matching gel provides an effective way of reducing Fresnel reflections, and decreasing power loss in connectors and mechanical splices.
Apply this index matching gel easily onto connector end faces and inside mechanical splices.
