Albis Optoelectronics Extends Portfolio of Photodiodes for Long-Wavelength LiDAR

Albis Optoelectronics is a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of high- speed photodiodes. Since more than 15 years, the company has offered the broadest portfolio of Telcordia qualified InP and GaAs photodiodes for datacom and telecom applications in the industry. At the upcoming Photonics West Exhibition in San Francisco, Albis will present its new highly sensitive APD chip APD05C1. This linear mode APD is optimized for long-wavelength, eye safe LiDAR applications and comes Getting to grips with the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations: new Firefly clip range from SWA offers ideal solution for fibre optic cabling. SWA’s ingenious Firefly Push Grip Clips are fast proving popular as the perfect solution for compliance with new BS7671 regulations prohibiting the use of plastic clips or glues in fibre optic cable installations. Offering a super-strong substrate grip, the design- engineered white-finish steel clips have a melting point above 1300ºC, ensuring fibre optic and other small cables

noise. The integrated backside lens focuses the incoming photons on the topside detecting area enabling higher fill factor and coupling efficiency.

with low dark current and low excess noise. Thanks to the low device capacitance, the APD can be operated in pulsed time-of-flight (TOF) systems as well as offers the required bandwidth and linearity to pursue formats such as frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW). The APD operates in the wavelength range from 990nm up to 1650nm and has an exceptionally high responsivity of 1.1 A/W. The backside substrate acts as an integrated sunlight filter, absorbing parasitic signals in the visible spectrum without increasing

fit and practically invisible once installed, so it is no surprise they have rapidly won an enthusiastic welcome frommajor UK providers of broadband fibre.” Available in two sizes to support 0.9mm and 2.0mm cables, the clips come in a smooth safe finish to prevent cable damage and are suitable for fixing in concrete, brick or wood. Once a hole has been drilled, the clips are fitted in seconds using just finger pressure or with the optional plastic fitting tool. Contact:

Fujikura launches 90S core alignment fusion splicer

Fujikura has launched the 90S fusion splicer with a range of new features designed to enable the user to work faster and with higher precision. The company says that overall splice process time has been significantly reduced in comparison to 70S+, launched at ECOC back in 2017. This, it says, has been achieved with a combination of improvements to the reaction time of the automated wind protectors and automated heater,

combined with advanced image processing to ensure the most precise and repeatable splice ever. The 90S builds on Fujikura’s Active Blade Management Technology which allows two CT50 cleavers to be connected simultaneously. Active Blade Management is a way of wirelessly connecting the splicer to the optical

new fibre retention clamps, improved universal sheath clamps and a redesigned internal structure that matches the protection sleeve position to the fusion splice point which enables splicing to be achieved without the need of the user to touch the 90S once the process has started. The improvement in speed has been achieved whilst also improving the precision of the 90S, utilising cutting edge true core alignment technology

fibre cleaver. By continually monitoring the cleaver performance and automatically prompting the user at the optimum point to rotate the blade the total cost of ownership will be dramatically reduced.
