Metrology for the photonics industry – optical fibres, waveguides and applications

Project: EU project

Project Details


Improved metrology and characterisation techniques for photonics industry.

New methods and improved metrology are needed to reliably and traceably measure novel components used in photonics systems.

Project develops characterisation techniques for photonic devices and components as well
as calibration techniques and reference materials for fibre measuring instruments.

VTT MIKES develops methods to measure group velocity and dispersion in fibres as well as dimensional parameters of fibres.
