Integrating Sphere

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2010
OptoTest Corp.Request Info
 
OptoTest Corp. has launched the S-RHIS smart remote head integrating sphere designed to accurately measure absolute power and insertion loss. It also is suitable for assessing all types of bare fibers as well as ribbon fibers terminated with high-density connectors such as MTP/MPO, MT Ferrule and MT-RJ. It also can be used for all simplex connectors such as FC, SC and LC (simplex or unibody). It has a two-port design that enables access to two different types of connectors without adapter change, making it a suitable setup for efficient workbench operation. The dual optical port configuration can be equipped with a choice of InGaAs or silicon detectors to cover a wide wavelength range. Other features include wide dynamic range detectors, a 50.8-mm cavity with a high reflective coating, and calibration factors that are stored directly within the sphere.

GLOSSARY
adapter
1. In optics, the housing, usually cylindrical, that contains the lenses and iris diaphragm of a camera. 2. In fiber optics, a device for coupling two connectors.
cavity
In a laser, the optical resonator formed by two coaxial mirrors, one totally and one partially reflective, positioned so that laser oscillations occur.
connector
Hardware installed on fiber cable ends to provide cable attachment to a transmitter, receiver or other cable. Usually a device that can be connected and disconnected repeatedly.  
insertion loss
The total optical power loss caused by the insertion of an optical component such as a connector, splice or coupler into a fiber optic system. See attenuation.
integrating sphere
A hollow sphere coated internally with a white diffusing material and provided with openings for incident beam, specimen and detector used for measuring the diffuse reflectance or transmittance of objects.  
reflective coating
Thin-film coating, single or multilayer, that is applied to a substrate to increase its reflectance over a specified range of wavelengths. Metal film, transparent or opaque, is the oldest form of reflective coating.
simplex
A fiber optic transmission system in which data can go in only a single direction.
