I am looking for a fiber optic patch cord for VIS-NIR spectroscopy.1000um core, with SMA connectors. Edmund Optics is 4 weeks backordered, though they have the raw cable in stock. So, I need to find either:
Someone who stocks a 1000um fiber optic patch cord with SMA connectors
Some way of putting SMA connectors on the raw cable.
How hard is it to put SMA connectors on fiber optic cable? Where can I get the connector kits?
For that matter, is there any easy way of connecting the SMA connector to something that I can clamp into place so that I can focus light on the end of the fiber?
