Designed for optical component manufacturers, the VF-20 fiber inspection system from Arden Photonics Ltd. checks the quality and end angle of cleaved or polished optical fibers. It is based on the Michelson interferometer and can measure the quality of perpendicular and angled fiber ends using removable precision fiber holders. The company says the system has a long working distance, eliminating the risk of damage to the fiber end. The VF-20 can be used in inspection mode or in interferometric mode to characterize the surface flatness.
