AMS Technologies AG of Martinsried/Munich, Germany, has finalized an agreement with Interfiber Analysis LLC of Livingston, N.J., to distribute the latter’s Refractive Index Profiler in all European countries. The device scans the optical index of refraction for optical fiber along its length and performs multiwavelength fiber index profiling.
- optical fiber
- A thin filament of drawn or extruded glass or plastic having a central core and a cladding of lower index material to promote total internal reflection (TIR). It may be used singly to transmit pulsed optical signals (communications fiber) or in bundles to transmit light or images.
- 1. A device used to trace out an object and build up an image. One of the most common of these types is video scanning. The scanning takes place inside the television tube as electrons, guided by electron optics, sweep linearly across a tube face coated on the inside with a phosphorescent material. A scanner can convert a paper drawing or photograph into pixels on a display screen. Scanners are also used to relay information in optical data processing. 2. A device that automatically measures or...
