Technologies and Products
Arden Photonics has announced the introduction of its FGC range of optical fibre geometry measurement equipment. The FGC range provides high speed automated measurement of fibre end-face geometry, including core diameter, core non-circularity, cladding diameter, cladding non-circularity and core-to-cladding concentricity. Options are available for measuring large diameter fibres (up to 1mm diameter) and specialty fibres such as double-clad, non-circular (e.g. octagonal), multicore and PM fibres. Side-view coating options are also available.
Complete measurement takes under 20 seconds. Specially designed holders, fibre handling bench and traceable calibration ensure repeatability of < 0.05µm on core and cladding diameters.
