Automated testing of multi-fibre connectors

Automated testing of multi-fibre connectors
LASER COMPONENTS has recommended the MPO switch from VIAVI Solutions for quick and easy OTDR testing of MPO multi-fibre connectors. In combination with an optical reflectometer and a base unit such as the MTS-4000 V2, it ensures that all twelve fibres of the MPO connector are tested for their attenuation, as it automatically switches from one to the other. Thus, the fibres no longer have to be tested individually using fanout cables.

Single carrier wireless link travels at 100Gb/s data rate

Single carrier wireless link travels at 100Gb/s data rate
A single carrier wireless link travelling at a 100 Gb/s data rate has been demonstrated by Tektronix and IEMN, a major French research laboratory. This demonstration uses advanced data coding, THz photonics and wideband and linear devices to enable ultra-fast wireless connections in the 252 - 325GHz band per the recently published IEEE 802.15.3d standard.

Optical fibres offer alternative way to 3D print microstructures

Optical fibres offer alternative way to 3D print microstructures
For the first time, researchers have shown that an optical fibre as thin as a human hair can be used to create microscopic structures with laser-based 3D printing. The innovative approach might one day be used with an endoscope to fabricate tiny biocompatible structures directly into tissue inside the body. This capability could enable new ways to repair tissue damage.

Fibre optic electronic packaging gets ruggedised

Fibre optic electronic packaging gets ruggedised
Connectivity and sensor company, TE Connectivity (TE), has released its newly developed optical flex circuit cable assemblies. These compact, robust fibre optic circuits offer a multifibre management solution for high-speed electronic packaging. Fully customisable for both card-to-card and backplane applications, TE’s new optical flex circuits are ruggedised for the harsh environments of aerospace, commercial and military aircraft, and defense systems.

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.
