Expanding outside broadcast horizons

Expanding outside broadcast horizons
As the demand for high-definition broadcasting signal transmissions has increased and the transition to DTV/HDTV has been fully realised, the role of fibre optics as the signal transmission medium continues to grow. Fibre-optic infrastructures offer the advantage of higher bandwidth, optical signal clarity and more reliable real-time transmissions, enabling providers to service even more applications for emerging technologies such as 4K and 8K UHDTV, IPTV and multi-channel audio.

Optical fibres help build a ‘billion sensors’ earthquake observatory

Optical fibres help build a ‘billion sensors’ earthquake observatory
Thousands of miles of buried optical fibres crisscross California’s San Francisco Bay Area delivering high-speed internet and HD video to homes and businesses. Biondo Biondi, a professor of geophysics at Stanford’s School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, dreams of turning that dense network into an inexpensive “billion sensors” observatory for continuously monitoring and studying earthquakes.

Could fibre optics be the way forward to detect faults on railways?

Could fibre optics be the way forward to detect faults on railways?
  Fibre optic cables could make a major contribution to the safety and maintenance of railways. Installed alongside the tracks, they are capable of detecting a huge range of soundwaves that might signify the early emergence of problems, such as damage to the rails.

Nanoscale imaging probe printed onto tip of optical fibre

Nanoscale imaging probe printed onto tip of optical fibre
Combining speed with incredible precision, a team of researchers has developed a way to print a nanoscale imaging probe onto the tip of a glass fibre as thin as a human hair, accelerating the production of the promising new device from several per month to several per day. The high-throughput fabrication technique opens the door for the widespread adoption of this and other nano-optical structures, which squeeze and manipulate light in ways that are unachievable by conventional optics.

Sticklers MPO CleanClicker speeds data centre operations

Sticklers MPO CleanClicker speeds data centre operations
The Sticklers fibre optic cleaning team will be showcasing another innovation at BICSI Winter 2017 at the Tampa Convention Center, Tampa FL from Jan 22-26. This innovation will grab the attention of installers using MPO interconnects. The “keyless” MPO CLEANCLICKER 600 cleaning tool from Sticklers will make it far easier to clean MPO connectors in high density applications.
