TG400 green laser

Technifor has expanded its laser offering with the TG400 green laser. With the laser's 532nm wavelength, this system can be used for marking materials that do not interact with other classic laser equipment (using near-infrared 1,064nm), such as YAG, YVO4, fibre, or CO2.

This solution is designed with medical, electronics, electrical, and plastics marking applications in mind. It will enable the marking of sensitive materials such as silicon, reflective metals, printed circuits, ceramics, and a range of plastics.

As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance

Feature

Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move

Feature

Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby

Feature

With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
