AVON, Conn., Jan. 29, 2014  /PRNewswire/ -- OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer, and supplier of innovative fiber optic products will present three well-timed papers on imaging, sensing, and the effects of sterilization.  Each paper will be presented on Saturday, February 1st, at SPIE's BiOS Conference located at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

The papers are entitled "Effects of sterilization on optical and mechanical reliability of specialty optical fibers and terminations," "Design of a long working distance graded index fiber lens with a low NA for fiber-optic probe in OCT application," and "Integrated optical fiber shape senor modules based on twisted multicore fiber grating arrays."  The subject matter ranges from the effects of different sterilization techniques, to optimizing GRIN lenses, and a complete integrated optical fiber assembly suitable for shape sensing-including twisted multicore optical fiber with fiber Bragg gratings inscribed along its length.

Mr. Michael Fortin, OFS Vice President of Marketing and Sales, states, "More and more we are asked to develop complicated optical fiber probes for both sensing and imaging, and sterilization is always a vital design consideration."  Fortin continues, "These three technical presentations are pertinent and extremely useful for the market and demonstrate our commitment to providing product that meets the critical requirements of our customers."
