PolaMagic: Measuring Reflection and Birefringence in Optical Fibers

The optical frequency domain range reflectometer OFDR-1000A analyzes the polarization


D79-101

PolaMagic is the name of General Photonics’ new optical frequency domain range reflectometer (OFDR). It not only measures reflections along a fiber but also analyzes the polarization of light.

Very tight bending radii and mechanical stress affect the lifetime of optical fibers. Finding such disturbances is difficult with fibers that are insensitive to bending because they do not necessarily lead to additional reflections or an increase in attenuation. Conventional OTDR measurement fails in this respect.

However, both disturbance factors affect the birefringence of the optical fiber. The PolaMagic OFDR-1000A measures this change in birefringence at a specific location precisely to within 2 mm; therefore, it is very well suited for detection in fibers that are insensitive to bending.

This measurement device also identifies locations of internal reflection and changes in birefringence in the optical path of fiber-optic components reliably; for this reason, it is used in the quality control of optical components.

The PolaMagic OFDR-1000A can be operated with tunable C band and L band laser sources from third party providers. Oftentimes, existing sources can be used, which minimizes the investment costs of OFDR measurement.
