Optical Fibers Illuminate Brain Activity

Leave a Comment

Medical imaging faces limitations inherent to its mode of presentation. While computer models and virtual reality are much more effective than 2D depictions, the result continues to be still images on a computer screen. Even with stereoscopic techniques, a user’s ability to visualize the result can depend on using a keyboard or mouse to interpret […]

Leave a Comment

  OFS will showcase its new Shape Sensor Fiber at the BIOS/Photonics West Exposition in San Francisco, January 28-February 2, 2017. To create the Shape Sensor Fiber, OFS developed a technology platform to produce high-quality, twisted multicore optical fiber with continuous Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs). This type of fiber with FBGs provides stable and good […]


OFS Showcases Award-Winning, Next-Generation Multimode Fiber

Leave a 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 […]

Silicon photonics technology is coming to market at a time of momentous change for Internet content providers, data centers, chip and optical components manufacturers and telecom service providers. In fact, silicon photonics (SiP) is set to change a number of these industries, as a new book co-authored by Daryl Inniss of OFS explains.  Silicon Photonics: […]


The Top 10 Myths About Submarine Networks

Leave a Comment

Sharks will eat submarine cables. Actually, sharks don’t seem to like the taste of these cables. While submarine cables carry a tremendous amount of the world’s data, the “prevailing wisdom” about undersea networks suffers from many common fallacies. These misconceptions range from myths surrounding past technologies to those that involve “toothy” marine life. A recent […]

The International Day of Photonics is held every two years to recognize and promote the role of photonics in our world. On this day (October 21 in 2016), organizations work to raise awareness about photonics and the important role that it plays in our lives. In fact, photonics is a key enabling technology for a […]


The Standards They Are A-Changin’

Leave a Comment

Recent activity in the TIA TR-42 Engineering Committee produced multiple standards affecting the specification, design, installation and management of fiber optic cabling components and systems. To help providers understand these changing standards, Product Manager John Kamino will take center stage in a webinar sponsored by Cabling Installation and Maintenance on October 27, 2016. During this […]



OCT Imaging Improves Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Leave a Comment

In a recent study, researchers from the University Hospital Jean Minjoz (Besacon, France) demonstrated that optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging can more readily visualize the coronary arteries in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and lead to better outcomes when compared to standard angiography-guided PCI. The study found that OCT provided useful additional information beyond […]
