Successful kick-off: Thuringian growth core for innovative optical fibers

Successful kick-off: Thuringian growth core for innovative optical fibers

wachstumskernefederal ministry education research

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports the project partners with a subsidy amount of 10 million Euros. Official start of the project was January 2017.

18 companies and 3 research institutions form the regional growth core »Tailored Optical Fibers (TOF)« and receive financial support from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research for the next three years.

The alliance will now focus on content: SMEs and larger companies will cooperate with research institutions in order to develop a joint technology platform for tailored fibers in new photonic applications. The involved enterprises intend to market the new fibers worldwide subsequent to the project. Potential fields of application are: sophisticated fiber optic metrology in industry and medicine, novel light sources for laser and material processing, or light emitting textiles.

Besides innovative high-tech products, such as high temperature fibers for resource exploration, fiber sensors for keyhole surgery, or smart surfaces for vehicle interiors, the cooperation will develop an efficient network, which will prospectively deliver tailored solutions for individual customer requirements in other market segments. In the long run, this approach will help to increase the companies’ turnover and create new jobs in the region.

For the first time, manufacturers of optical fibers join forces with component and system builders to establish a powerful alliance. The companies with residence in Thuringia and Saxony have long-time experience in the field of manufacturing, processing and application of specially designed fibers. For three years to come, the specialists will work together to achieve product and technology leadership, and contribute 5m Euros of equity capital to the project. To support the marketing and organization of the project, the growth core is accompanied by OptoNet.

dB-meter as an instrument at Photonics West

PR

Fibotec introduces the dB-Meter Instrument as a further stage of the dB-Meter module, a proven device for several years. The module is the preferred solution for online surveillance of insertion loss (IL) and return loss (RL), and for testing transient light change up to 10 kHz data recognition. The new instrument with a fast digital display is a table top device for lab and production use.

The dB-Meter is available as a 1-channel and as a 2-channel version. Optional light sources can be integrated (customer specific), so that IL-testing can be done with this instrument at one or two wavelenghts. Max. input power is 2 mW, the saturation input power is factory set to optimize the dynamic range according to the integrated light source(s). Dynamic range of the dB-Meter is min. 70 dB, 0.01 dB display resolution, and the expected stability of typical custom light sources is < 0.1 dB (@15 min after warm-up). An additional option is an integrated RL-test (2-channel version only, with one light source). An external supply powers the instrument @ < 1 A V DC (11-13 V). The display shows absolute power and loss (zeroing at the front panel). Besides a front panel operation the dB-Meter can be controlled through a serial interface (USB). This enables customers to write software to integrate the dB-Meter in their own environment.

Laserdiode Socketdriver (LSD) at Photonics West

PR

This year at Photonics West Fibotec presents one of the Laser Diode Drivers with socket in an improved version. The socket takes laser devices in butterfly-package. This is a simple solution to operate these devices in a lab. The standard version of the Laserdevice Socketdriver (LSDP) is done for diodes with „pum laser pinout“ and an operating current up to 2 A. The operational parameters of the laser diode or SLD, being plugged by the customer, are set manually, or through a remote interface (USB). The new version has a touch display improving the easiness to use. This display makes it possible to set laser and TEC parameters and read it out during operation. The Laserdevice Socketdriver has been designed in detail for institutes, R&D departments and small test jobs in QA departments, that all work with laser components that should not be soldered permanently.
