Inline Fiber Optic Attenuators UPC & APC

An optical attenuator is a device used to reduce the level of an optical signal, either in free space or in an optical fiber. They are commonly used in fiber optic communications. Optical attenuators used in fiber optic communications systems may use a variety of principles for their functioning. Those using the gap loss principle are sensitive to the modal distribution ahead of the […]

What makes singlemode & multimode fiber optic cables different?

Multimode & Singlemode fiber are the five types of fiber in common use. Both fibers are 125 microns in outside diameter – a micron is one one-millionth of a meter & 125 microns is 0.005 inches- a bit larger than the typical human hair. Multimode fiber has light travelling in the core in lots of […]
