Corning has been in lighting since producing the first glass light bulbs in 1879 for Thomas Edison. Now Corning has invented a new lighting product made of glass fiber! This new fiber is extremely thin and bright. There are numerous applications where the new lighting technology can be used because of its unique attributes. This new product is offered as a single strand of fiber or a bundle.
Many of Corning’s products are used in the medical and life sciences market space from fiber & components to opto-mechanical modules and assemblies. Our capabilities to design and manufacture products used in this space align well with the highly technical demands of the market.
