McPherson Inc.'s optical fiber environmental test system allows the study of wavelength-dependent propagation effects in optical fibers. The test chamber permits fixturing to measure bend radius losses and transmittance at temperatures from -50 to +100 °C. The system is designed to accept fibers from 15 mm in diameter down to the smallest sizes, with the fiber positioner and matching optics ensuring proper spectral input. The detector allows measurement of changes in numerical aperture and related chromatic, refractive and thermal properties.
