Lowering the Cost of Optical Power Measurements

Over the last few years, the demand for optical networks has exploded. An increasing number of communications manufacturers are designing products to capitalize on the high bandwidth and smaller size of fiber-optic components over their copper counterparts. In fact, many industry experts project that the optical network component industry will grow at 40 percent for the next three years. This growing opportunity leaves optical component manufacturers concerned with reducing development time. At the same time, they are searching for faster, more cost-effective ways to automate the manufacturing process.

Generally, companies must verify and calibrate optical components for manufacturing, quality assurance, research, production test, etc. Although the types of tests vary depending on the components being manufactured, optical power measurement is common across all optical devices and procedures.
