8 July 1999: US-based SpecTran Specialty Optics Company, a subsidiary of SpecTran Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories, have joined forces to characterize optical fibre for earth sciences applications. In a recent company press release, SpecTran Specialty Optics said it developed a fibre with specialty carbon/polyimide coatings capable of withstanding the high temperatures and harsh environmental conditions found primarily in oil wells and geothermal energy exploitation. Jana Horska, product marketing manager for SpecTran Specialty Optics Company, said that by working with Sandia National Labs on the project, it could optimize the long-term performance of its carbon/polyimide fibre under the most extreme conditions. The results of the project, said Spectran, will be a commercialized optical fibre for earth sciences applications. Projected completion is scheduled for the first quarter 2000.
