THE HEAT IS ON WITH PYROCOAT® K OPTICAL FIBER

Leave a Comment

With the growing need to accurately monitor processes in harsh environments, optical fibers are becoming an essential element within monitoring systems, both as the communications line and as the sensing element. Optical fiber sensors have been widely adopted and used in pipeline monitoring, perimeter monitoring, heat detection and structural monitoring systems, all of which operate […]


Searching Deep Space via Optical Fiber

Leave a Comment

For the first time, researchers have shown that a stable frequency reference can be reliably transmitted for more than 300 kilometers over a standard fiber optic telecommunications network in order to synchronize two radio telescopes. In The Optical Society of America’s Optica journal, researchers from a consortium of Australian institutions recently reported this successful transmission […]


Breakthrough Fiber Optic Laser May Revolutionize the Detection of Gases for Industry

Leave a Comment

An international research group has developed a world-first fiber optic technology which may help detect a wide range of gases with unprecedented sensitivity. Published in the journal Optica, the discovery involves the creation of a fiber optic device which consists of an invisible infrared laser coupled to an ultra-broadband supercontinuum generator – two elements that […]


Improving Capacity, Reach and Economics with Coherent Transport

3 Comments

Today, coherent transport technology enables speeds of 40 and 100 Gb/s over legacy fiber networks. However, emerging fundamental limitations in spectral efficiency and un-regenerated reach will soon begin to strain the economics of the internet. Backbone traffic is currently growing at a 30-50 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR), but consumers are reluctant to pay […]



OFS LaserWave® FLEX WideBand Multimode Fiber Next-Generation Multimode Technology

1 Comment

Data centers and enterprise networks continue to require ever-increasing speeds. Yesterday’s 10 Gbps networks are rapidly being replaced by 40 and 100 Gbps speeds, and 400 Gbps networks are on the horizon. How can today’s network designers best support this increasing demand for bandwidth?   TIA has standardized a new multimode fiber to support short […]
