Be the first to review this product

Product Code: OCDR-1000
Manufacturer: General Photonics Corporation

  • Dynamic Range: over 80 dB

  • Scan range: 600 mm (400 mm in fiber)

  • Spatial Resolution: down to 10 μm

  • Compact & Lightweight

  • Built-In Light Source

  • Performs functions of discontinued Agilent 8504B Reflectometer- and more!

The General Photonics InsideView™ is an optical coherence domain reflectometer (OCDR-1000) designed to obtain space-resolved reflection information inside a fibre optical component, such as a Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC), for diagnosing quality or design issues. It is based on a polarisation optimised white light interferometer proprietary to General Photonics. It performs the functions of the discontinued Agilent 8504B Reflectometer – and more – but with better polarisation management, spatial resolution, and accuracy; larger scan range and dynamic range; and smaller size and weight. It is a low cost alternative to OFDR technology, with a much higher dynamic range that avoids the masking of small reflection peaks by the large reflections typical of the input surface of an optical device.
