Arden Photonics FGC-GS measures specialty optical fibre geometries

Arden Photonics FGCG measurement system

Optical fibre manufacturers can quickly assess the geometry of any optical fibre with a new high-speed automated measuring system from Arden Photonics.

Designed for production and R&D environments, the FGC-G range delivers repeatable, operator-independent results in less than 10 seconds. The comprehensive measurement capability for end-face geometries includes core diameter, core non-circularity, cladding diameter, cladding non-circularity and core-to-cladding concentricity.
