Feeding the demand for faster and more reliable data connections, modern communications networks increasingly rely on high-performance fiber optics and photonics components. Luna’s advanced photonic testing solutions help engineers bring new photonic technology to market faster and more efficiently.
Developers and manufacturers of fiber optic systems and photonic components rely on Luna to deliver the data needed to analyze and optimize designs and quickly characterize and diagnose the optical performance of fiber optic assemblies, connectors, photonic components, and photonic integrated circuits (PICs).
Luna’s systems can deliver very fast and accurate results for end-of-line manufacturing test, or deployed as an advanced analyzer, delivering new insight to help develop and optimize today’s advanced photonic devices and systems.
Explore Key Solutions below for examples of Luna systems delivering essential capabilities for photonic devices, photonic components and fiber optics.
Optical Device Test and Characterization
Optical device test and characterization, based on optical frequency-domain reflectometry (OFDR), delivers the fastest and most complete characterization of fiber optic components, including PICs and silicon photonics. Fully characterize an optical component in a single three-second scan with full polarization analysis and incredible spatial resolution.
Testing Fiber Optic Networks and Assemblies
Luna’s fiber optic test solutions provide unprecedented visibility with fast and accurate characterization of waveguide devices, integrated optical devices, fiber components, cables and short networks. Ultra-high resolution reflectometers spatially map loss, including IL and RL measurements, along a network, allowing precise location of loss events, bad connectors, fiber bends and more. Also, Luna offers the industry’s highest-resolution portable reflectometer designed for field maintenance applications.
