For many specific applications, such as sensors, aerospace, chemical industry, deep-well oil-field industry, metal-coated fiber shows strong abilities to satisfy people's requirement. With in-line coating technology, we are able to coat Aluminum on the fibers. Using electromagnetic induction, we can easily heat an electrically conducting thing such as a metal with the eddy current. This process is defined as Induction heating. And we will melt the Aluminum by this induction heating during drawing the fibers on the tower. Introduce the fiber tower system. The drawing process of in-line technology is formed of the following steps: Position, Melting, Forming into fibers, Checking the diameter, Revising, Protective coatings. We will follow these to make the Aluminum coating fiber. With the help of the software which is 123D Design, I have four 3D model of the coating systems. Show the details of the all the coating systems such as the shape and the length of coated-fiber we can get. Talk about the photonic lantern which is the first project that I took part in when I joined the group. Show the mode profiles of our 6 to 1 lantern.
