Polymer Optical Fibers

Toray Industries, New York, NY, has launched Raytela® polymer optical fibers for minimally invasive surgery, including endoscopy, ureteroscopy, ophthalmic surgery, and other procedures. The fiber optic cable is a very flexible and highly efficient transmitter of high intensity light. Its greater light efficiency transmission means that it requires less intensity at the light source. An additional special characteristic is the significantly wider degree of light broadcasting at the distal end. This combination of special capabilities results in significantly smaller diameter devices that require fewer light cables.
