High Fidelity IL, RL and PDL The…Read More

New Measurement System is Multichannel and Real-Time

We recently introduced the newest generation of our distributed strain and temperature measurement platform which is more compact, expands to multiple input channels, and delivers reliable and robust real-time data. Customers are realizing that the ODiSI 6100 delivers a new level of functionality needed to tackle an even wider range of data acquisition applications in the lab, on the production floor, or in the field….Read More

Verifying the Integrity of Composite Adhesive Joints using the ODiSI

Chicken rivets may not sound like a very technical term.  However, it refers to the mechanical fasteners used extensively in the aerospace industry to guarantee the reliability of adhesive bonds of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) materials.   Because adhesive bonds are not very well understood, current certification requirements need proof that should a critical design load be reached, each adhesively bonded joint will not separate and…Read More

Join Luna for a FREE WEBINAR on improving optical component and system design, performance and quality

High-resolution optical backscatter reflectometry (OBR) has become a valuable tool in the design, test and diagnostics of fiber components, photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and short fiber networks. In much the same way standard OTDR is used for system-level test, high-resolution OBR can locate and identify issues (bends, breaks, bad splices, defects, interfaces, etc.) in components and short networks with sub-millimeter resolution long before they become…Read More

Free Webinar – Hosted by LUNA: Accelerating R&D in Silicon Photonics and PICs

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
