SOLIHULL, England, March 10, 2016 — Arden Photonics Ltd. has introduced the FGC range of optical fiber geometry measurement equipment, providing high-speed, automated measurement of fiber end-face geometry including core diameter, core noncircularity, cladding diameter, cladding noncircularity and core-to-cladding concentricity.
Complete measurement takes <20 s. Specially designed holders, fiber handling bench and traceable calibration ensure repeatability of <0.05 μm on core and cladding diameters.
Options are available for measuring large diameter fibers (up to 1 mm) and specialty fibers such as double-clad, noncircular, multicore and polarization-maintaining fibers. Side-view coating options are also available.
