Measuring silicon photonic devices presents a unique set of challenges. Luna will be hosting a webinar on August 31st, “Accelerating research & development in silicon photonics and photonic integrated circuits through fast and accurate optical characterization”, that will discuss how the capabilities of the OVA 5000 and OBR 4600 can be used to reduce the amount of iteration in the design, fab and test process….Read More

Upcoming Webinar with Zeus Industrial Products

Zeus Industrial Products partnered with Luna Innovations to evaluate PEEK coating for optical fiber. The PEEK was applied using an enhanced coating process developed by Zeus. Testing was done using Luna’s OBR 4600 to assess the effects of the PEEK coating process on the fibers signal attenuation.  Test results showed that the Zeus PEEK coated fiber performed at least as well as – and in…Read More

Introducing the ODiSI-B 5.0

  Today we introduced major enhancements to our ODiSI platform that provide valuable new capabilities to better measure strain and temperature. To keep pace with tomorrow, you need advanced technology in order to test advanced technology. Are you ready? Advanced materials are creating new challenges in the lab as well as on the production floor. While testing metals is easy, the anisotropic characteristics of composite…Read More

Characterizing devices with the OVA 5000 – Accelerating R&D in Silicon Photonics

The OVA 5000 – Speeding Development of Silicon Photonics Research The Luna OVA 5000 has many features and capabilities that can dramatically reduce laboratory test time in the pursuit of Silicon Photonics research. One of the more significant, yet often overlooked, capabilities is the OVA’s ability to measure a device’s linear transfer function and then derive a wide variety of industry standard parameters with a…Read More

You Can’t Fix What You Can’t See – Luna’s OBR 4600 Enables Unprecedented Visibility into Silicon Photonics Designs

At the recent OFC show in Anaheim California, Luna Innovations showcased how their OBR 4600 reflectometer helps advance research in the field of Silicon Photonics.  Working with the Blumenthal and Bowers Optoelectronics Research Groups at the University of California Santa Barbara, Luna Innovations demonstrated how the OBR 4600 can be used to determine the distributed loss across a 1 meter spiral delay line fabricated on…Read More
