|As the emphasis in optical fiber research expands from transmission media to functional fiber devices, various types of specialty optical fibers are being actively developed. Especially in dense wavelength multiplexing (DWDM) systems, novel functions such as fiber filters, fiber MUX/DEMUX, fiber amplifiers, among others, are constantly needed and supplied by specialty fibers. Until recently, optical fibers were treated as passive transmission media with very little attention given to these novel fiber technologies. Features of the book include:
* Includes review of specialty fiber fabrication technologies.
* Discussion of dispersion managed fiber technology for high capacity WDM applications.
* Covers optical fiber technologies for broadband fiber amplifiers, optical fiber technologies for fiber filleters based on periodic coupling, optical fiber technologies for fiber branching devices, and optical fiber technologies for fiber terminations. [472 Pages, Hardcover]
Driving the global spread of renewable solar energy, French company S’Tile is developing an innovative solar cell, known as the i-Cell.
The manufacturing process involves many steps, each of which must be carefully and individually optimized for maximizing solar cell performance, and the Olympus DSX500 and LEXT OLS4100 have proved instrumental in optimizing i-Cell fabrication.
The 10th Porous Semiconductors Science and Technology (PSST) meeting will be held in Tarragona, Spain on March 6, 2016 – March 11.
