News & Events


Luna Polarization Control Technology Enables Growth of Hyperscale Data Centers

Luna announced a large contract in support of a major technology provider’s hyperscale data centers. The provider will employ Luna’s polarization control technology to help improve the accuracy of tests it performs on components it installs in its data centers.


Luna Reflectometers - An Indispensable Tool for PDV System Diagnostics

Luna’s optical frequency domain reflectometry (OFDR) technology has facilitated PDV system development since the early days of PDV. The OBR 4600’s high spatial resolution reflectivity measurement and ability to characterize a complete optical path in one scan make it extremely useful as a diagnostic tool for PDV systems.


Commissioning Finalized on World’s Largest Fiber Optic-based Infrastructure Monitoring System

Luna collaborated with  automation contractor ABB, to provide leak detection, pipeline security and facility security across the 1,811 km route for the transcontinental gas supply from Azerbaijan to the EU, a project spanning six years for Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP).


Exploring LIDAR, Part I

In this first of a two-part blog series, we take a closer look at LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology and its broad-reaching applications that impact many of our daily activities.


Benefits of Fiber Optic Sensing Versus Electrical Gages

Why do customers choose FOS over electrical gages? In this post we unpack why fiber optic sensing has overtaken electrical sensors. While electrical sensors have been the industry standard for over 80 years, they have limitations that make them a sub-optimal choice for many applications in which fiber optic sensors excel.
