Santec’s new tunable laser TSL-550 offers a cost-effective solution for high power, high accuracy and high SNR component testing

27/08/2015
 
Tunable lasers are an integral part of optical test systems to measure insertion loss, isolation, polarization dependence, wavelength dependence and reflectivity of optical components.   As experts in tunable laser technology, Santec built the world’s first commercially available external cavity tunable laser back in 1987.  This year they introduce their latest model tunable laser, the TSL-550.  Innovation in tunable laser resonator design in the TSL-550 results in lower optical ASE for extraordinarily high signal-to-noise ratio of over 90dB/0.1nm, while maintaining a high output power of over +10dBm.  The TSL-550 features key advances in testing speed, resolution, accuracy and dynamic range, raising confidence and lowering costs of component verification.  Equipped as standard with fine tuning and coherence control, the TSL-550 is fully programmable, making it a must have tool for precision optical testing.

New LC Connector, from FibreFab.

27/08/2015
 
FibreFab’s QuickFlip™ LC Connector is a new and innovative solution to the polarity reversal problem. The well known duplex LC connector has been re-engineered to provide a simple and easy way to reverse the fibre’s polarity. The connector is made of two parts with a removable front assembly allowing a simple “Remove, Rotate and Reassemble” action to reverse the polarity. The rear of the assembly, containing ferrules, fibre and cable retention, remains intact and the fibres are undisturbed. This is a unique feature of QuickFlip™.

NEW! AFL FlexScan OTDR

12/08/2015
 
Quickly and reliably troubleshoot optical networks, or fully characterize newly installed or repaired networks using AFL’s FlexScan OTDR. Rugged, robust and powerful, FlexScan automates test setup, shortens test time and simplifies result interpretation. By using SmartAuto™ mode, multiple OTDR scans can quickly and accurately detect, locate, identify and measure network components and faults. With LinkMap™ – an intuitive, icon-based display – results are easy to review and understand.

Automated design of fibre-to-chip grating couplers with OmniSim’s new “Surface Grating Coupler Design Utility”

12/08/2015

Photon Design’s FDTD+FETD simulation tool OmniSim features a new design tool which allows you to design and optimise surface grating couplers automatically. You only need to specify your epitaxial structure and the properties of your output beam and OmniSim will automatically generate 2D grating profiles with routines for finding the best effiency, with a choice of periodic or apodised geometry. OmniSim can also generate the 3D layout of the grating and calculate their efficiency; for tapered gratings it will automatically generate the curvature of the grating lines based on the taper geometry. http://www.photond.com/products/omnisim/omnisim_features_04.htm

Fiber Couple InterconneX (FCX) from Optoscribe at ECOC 2015. Booth 644.

FCX is a unique glass interface designed to enable simple coupling to arrays of emitters or receivers including VCSELs / PDs or PICs. Easy to integrate into system-in-a-package (SIP) solutions, the FCX can be mounted onto PCBs, optical boards or directly bonded as part of hybrid assemblies. The reduced package size simplifies fiber interconnection and liberates design constraints associated with optical I/O. FCX is compatible with a wide variety of standard fiber architectures including SMF and MMF, and also supports advanced space division multiplexed transmission using Multicore Fiber (MCF) or Few Mode Fiber (FMF). http://www.optoscribe.com/products/fcx-fiber-coupled-interconnex/
