A New Hollow-Core Optical Fiber

Enhancing the potential of optical interferometric systems and sensors

Revamping Optical Fibers to Transmit Even More Data

Telecom companies have installed over 2.5 billion miles of optical fibers – enough to reach from Earth to Neptune

Precision Fiber Alignment Arrays Introduced by Optoscribe

Structures offer unrivalled levels of optical performance through precise alignment of fiber arrays

Opto-electronic Testing for VCSEL Lasers on Wafer Level

NanoTest” station with opto-electronic testing for VCSEL type lasers (vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser) on wafer level. Optical and electrical qualification of VCSELs at the wafer level helps to differentiate well-working lasers from the ones with mediocre performance. In this way, unnecessary processing of low-quality devices is saved early and possible problems during wafer production will be determined.
