Comprehensive characterization of next generation plastic optical fibers

Product Photo

While the 2500 Optical Fiber Analysis System is the industry-standard for testing standard, silica multimode optical fibers, it is also capable of performing comprehensive characterization of the new generation of graded-index plastic optical fibers (GIPOF). The 2500 provides high speed, repeatable measurement of several critical fiber properties including spectral attenuation, time- domain (pulse) bandwidth, single-mode launch differential mode delay, core diameter and numerical aperture - all in accordance with recently developed IEC measurement standards. The GIPOF-capable 2500 is compatible with fibers having core diameters up to 120 um (IEC Type A4g and A4h).
