TEST & MEASUREMENT: Optical tests rise to the challenge of specialty fibers

Like their conventional-fiber counterparts, specialty-fiber manufacturers need high-quality measurement data, but they also have unique measurement requirements because of unique properties of the fibers they make.

Like their conventional-fiber counterparts, specialty-fiber manufacturers need high-quality measurement data, but they also have unique measurement requirements because of unique properties of the fibers they make. Improved instrumentation helps these manufacturers meet production goals for specialty fibers, including graded-index plastic optical fiber, large-core plastic-clad silica fiber, and polarization-maintaining fiber.
