  • Patent number: 9008506
    Abstract: A fiber network events measurement apparatus has a laser module alternately generating a pulse signal detecting beam and an FMCW detecting beam. The beams are sent to the fiber network route through a directional coupler. A photo detector receives feedback energy of the beams transmitting in the fiber network route and converts the feedback energy into electronic signals. A mixer uses a frequency difference calculation to obtain a comparison result according to an original and a reflected FMCW signal. The electronic signal is converted into a digital signal by an A/D converter. A signal control unit then obtains a compound trace result including information of characteristic trace and event positions. The compound trace result shows a fiber characteristic trace and event position trace for measuring the fiber network routes.

  • Patent number: 8855486
    Abstract: A remotely controlled fiber testing method has the steps of: building a fiber network system including a local fiber station and a remote fiber station; sending a modulated signal to the remote fiber station by the local fiber station; demodulating the modulated signal to obtain a control command by the remote fiber station; executing the control command to obtain a testing result by the remote fiber station; modulating the testing result and sending the testing result back to the local fiber station; and demodulating the testing result by the local fiber station. Only one technician appointed to the local fiber station is sufficient to do the testing action. Therefore, the personnel cost is effectively reduced.

  • Patent number: 8837937
    Abstract: A detecting device that detects insertion loss of fiber route and return loss of individual events in an optical fiber network based on signals from dual paths to obtain various kinds of reference information of the optical fiber network. When the first path is selected, a detection signal produced using frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technique is output to the optical fiber network. A return signal of the detection signal is used to analyze the position and return loss of various events in the optical fiber network. When the second path is selected, a common detection light is output to the optical fiber network. Based on the return signal of the common detection light, the insertion loss and total return loss of the entire network are obtained.

  • Publication number: 20120033688
    Abstract: The present invention provides a single frequency fiber laser apparatus. The fiber laser apparatus includes a Faraday rotator mirror. A piece of erbium doped fiber is inside the laser cavity. A wavelength selective coupler is connected to the erbium doped fiber. A pump source is coupled via the wavelength selective coupler. At least one sub-ring cavity component and/or an absorb component are inserted into the cavity for facilitating suppressing laser side modes to create a single longitudinal mode fiber laser. A partial reflectance fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is used as the front cavity end for this fiber laser.

  • Patent number: 7457537
    Abstract: An optical telecommunication system with automatic channel switching is disclosed. The system is provided with two symmetrical fiber channels and two subsystems. Each subsystem is formed by two 2×2 optical switches that are connected to each end of the primary and secondary channels, including an input light source, an optical receiver, multiple fiber optic power meters, and a control circuit. Data signals are normally sent over the primary channel, while test signals are passed through the secondary channel. The fiber optic power meters are connected to the receiving ends to monitor the power level of transmitted signals over the two channels simultaneously. If a line disconnection is detected, the control circuit automatically initiates a channel switching between the primary channel and secondary channel, and yet optical signals are transmitted and received transparently with high efficiency and reliability.
