GeO2-based Glass

High Power Handling

Excellent Flexibility and Strength

Low Optical Loss


A key component to the Er:YAG, YSGG or Ho:YAG mid-infrared laser system is the optical fiber, which is used to transmit the laser power from the laser to the patient. Since conventional silica glass fibers cannot transmit in the infrared, a special fiber (HPTM fiber) made from Germanium Oxide (GeO2) – based glass was developed by IFS. Fiber can handle up to 20 Watts of laser power for applications in dermatology, dentistry, ophthalmology, orthopedics and general surgery and is being sold worldwide to numerous laser companies. There are no other reliable fibers on the market for these types of applications and with today’s production volumes, IFS is a leading supplier of specialty HPTM fiber for mid-infrared medical lasers.
