Are you interested in characterizing Spun Fibers?

By |December 4th, 2017|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Are you interested in characterizing Spun Fibers?

For fiber optic current sensor (FOCS) application, it is important to get detailed information on the circular and residual linear birefringence of the spun fiber, which the current commercial spec sheets don’t offer directly.

General Photonics has upgraded PSGA-101 instrument with an algorithm which can simultaneously, for the first time, measure both the circular and the residual linear birefringences of a spun fiber – thanks to the high accuracy and repeatability of its patented binary polarization rotator-based technology.

With the PSGA-101 instrument we

General Photonics Shows New Polarization Analyzing OFDR at OFC 2016

By |February 11th, 2016|Uncategorized|Comments Off on General Photonics Shows New Polarization Analyzing OFDR at OFC 2016

 

General Photonics had a successful exhibition at OFC 2016 in Anaheim.

OFC is the largest global conference on optical networking and communications, with over 12,000 attendees  and 560 exhibiting companies.

Visitors to our booth had a first look at the new OFDR-1000A, a first of its kind polarization analyzing OFDR which can provide temperature independent, space resolved measurement of both birefringence (transverse stress) and reflections along an optical path. The demonstration showed
