End-Face Interferometer

BioPhotonics
Sep 2011
Arden Photonics Ltd.Request Info
 
Arden Photonics Ltd. has launched the VFI-1200 optical fiber end-face interferometer, based on the company’s VF-20 Trio. The interferometric inspection system is designed for checking the surface quality and flatness of cleaved, polished or lensed fibers. Crisp end-face images show defects, and high-contrast fringe patterns make it easy to estimate end angles. The 5-megapixel camera shows high detail and has a 6x digital zoom. Proprietary fiber holders render the instrument accurate and easy to use. Third-party adapter plates facilitate integration into cleaving and polishing operations. The holders can accommodate fibers with diameters from 125 to 1200 μm. Software enables users to grab, save and print images, and to record quality assurance data and generate reports. Applications include medical device manufacturing and fiber R&D.

GLOSSARY
interferometer
An instrument that employs the interference of lightwaves to measure the accuracy of optical surfaces; it can measure a length in terms of the length of a wave of light by using interference phenomena based on the wave characteristics of light. Interferometers are used extensively for testing optical elements during manufacture. Typical designs include the Michelson, Twyman-Green and Fizeau interferometers. The basic interferometer components are a light source, a beamsplitter, a reference...
surface quality
The specification of allowable flaws in a surface by comparison to reference standards of quality. Two graded sets of surface quality standards are employed. The first denotes defects of a long nature such as scratches, and the second indicates essentially round defects such as digs.
