|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]
Revealing hidden information in digital images
Quantitative information is of great importance within manufacturing and quality control, bringing objectivity and confidence to the decision-making process. Under the correct conditions, an image acquired with light microscopy will contain a wealth of information, but the trick is how to extract and utilise this effectively.
Our latest white paper, brought to you by Olympus, covers many of these methods, focusing on the importance of software throughout the entire workflow.
Olympus has launched the latest version of its workflow-orientated materials science imaging software, Stream 1.9.
