Fibre optic converters meet demands of long-distance data transmission

Fibre optic converters meet demands of long-distance data transmission
The fibre optic media converter product range at Advantech has been extended with the launch of models EKI-2541ML, EKI-2541SL, EKI-2741ML, EKI-2741SL and EKI-2741FL. Advantech is aware that the demand for media conversion is increasing, and understands the difficulty involved in replacing or rewiring existing devices.

Fibre optic sensing spin-off launched

Fibre optic sensing spin-off launched
Ghent University (UGent) and imec have announced the incorporation of Sentea, a spin-off from their world leading Photonics Research Group. An initial €1.6m in funding was raised from Fidimec, Finindus, PMV and QBIC II and the founders. Sentea will develop and market advanced silicon photonics based fibre optic sensing solutions.

Versatile coating stripper for optical fibres

Versatile coating stripper for optical fibres
LASER COMPONENTS has offered a robust and versatile coating stripper, the GPST-1000 by Lightel, for all those who work with optical fibres of different builds and diameters. Coatings made of polyimides (PI), acrylate, or silicone can be removed just as cleanly as two-layer coatings, at fibre diameters from 80μm to 1200μm. Stripping is carried out completely contact free by a plasma, preventing chemical and mechanical damage. There is not the slightest impairment of the fibre strength.

Extended portfolio of optical fibres

Extended portfolio of optical fibres
LASER COMPONENTS has extended its portfolio of Fibercore products to include single- mode fibres with wavelengths from 488nm to 1625nm. Many varieties are covered: for example, single-mode fibres with an ultra-low profile or large NA for improved bending resistance. Some types have a high germanium content and thus intrinsic photosensitivity for writing fibre Bragg gratings without further hydrogen passivation.

Fibre optic switch for LiDAR applications

Fibre optic switch for LiDAR applications
LASER COMPONENTS has introduced the Agiltron CrystaLatch (CL) series of optical switches that are specifically designed for sensor and LiDAR applications. The CL 1x6 switch assigns the incoming signal to one of the six available output ports and simultaneously detects the reflected signal via a dedicated sensor port. It is designed for permanent, fail-safe live operation under strong vibrations, and works perfectly even at temperatures of -40°C.

Erbium Ytterbium doped optical fibres for fibre lasers

Erbium Ytterbium doped optical fibres for fibre lasers
LASER COMPONENTS has offered Erbium Ytterbium doped fibre with a core diameter range of 6um to 30um. Due to great demand for high power CW sources at 1.5um and output power of 20-30W range, our partner iXblue has worked extensively to improve both the core composition and the low index coating package in order to bring this technology up to customers’ expectations.

Fibre tips with ball lenses for end-face processing

Fibre tips with ball lenses for end-face processing
LASER COMPONENTS have provided custom ball lens profiles on the end faces of silica fibres. The plasma-based CMS process with ring-of-fire technology supports fibre diameters of 200, 365, 400, 550 and 600μm, including other diameters within the limits of the equipment. For fibres used in medical applications, end-face processing can be carried out in a clean room in accordance with ISO 13485. The entire process is also compliant to ISO 13485 hygiene requirements.

Optical fibres can 'feel' the materials around them

Optical fibres can 'feel' the materials around them
EPFL researchers have developed an optical fibre capable of detecting what sort of material or liquid they have come into contact with. Their research has been published in Nature Communications. In recent years optical fibres have served as sensors to detect changes in temperature, like a thermometer, and pressure, like an artificial nerve. This technique is particularly useful in structures such as bridges and gas pipelines.

Rack patch panels pre-assembled with connectors

Rack patch panels pre-assembled with connectors
Feedthrough and conventional connectors from Clif Electronics are mounted in the widely used, industry standard, 24mm-diameter XLR panel cut-out. Standardising on this commonly used format simplifies panel design and manufacture by having the same cut-out for every connector required.
