Fiber Arrays Fiber arrays are one- or two-dimensional optical arrays made of single or multiple optical fibers. These are typically used for coupling optical fibers to planar lightwave circuits, sensors or other photonic integrated circuit components such as power splitters and fiber optic connectors. Fiber arrays are usually fabricated with extremely tight tolerance, often using […]
The Importance of Knowing AWG AWG is one of the most important things to know about wiring. It can make a big difference when it comes to choosing the right cable for a specific application. There are many different wire gauges and sizes available in the market. It can be difficult to know which one […]
Fiber Optics and Mini CWDM In fiber optic communications, wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) is a technique that multiplexes a number of optical carrier signals onto one strand of fiber by using different wavelengths. Two key WDM technologies are Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM). Which solution is best suited for a […]
Fiber Optic Components Unlike copper wire-based transmission, fiber optics transmit signals in the form of light. Therefore, they require sophisticated optical components like transmitters, optical fiber and receivers. Modern optical fibers are based on glass, but other materials may be used in situations where cost is a major consideration. Hard-clad silica (HCS) is a popular […]
PLC Splitter – A Passive Component Used in Passive Optical Network (PON) PLC splitter is a passive component used in Passive Optical Network (PON) to distribute fiber optic signals to multiple subscribers. It has no electronics and requires no power. The basic function of a plc splitter is to separate an incident light beam into […]
MPO FA Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a key enzyme of the microbicidal activity of neutrophils. It produces a variety of antimicrobial toxins, including oxidants and hydrogen peroxide. MPO has been shown to be involved in the development of many inflammatory diseases. Its inhibition limits DC activation, Ag uptake/processing and migration to LNs. This inhibits the generation […]
Fiber Arrays in the Optical Field In the optical field, fiber arrays are a good way to connect different optical components in a single device. They can be used for a wide variety of applications, including signal splitting, photonic integrated circuits, and beam collimation. Fiber arrays are also used for cell-based biosensors, which allow the […]
