Arden Photonics, represented by David Robinson, was pleased to take part in the Workshop on Specialty Optical Fibers and Their Applications. The event was hosted by ACREO, and organised by ACREO in conjunction with the OSA. It took place in the historic town of Sigtuna, not far from Stockholm in Sweden. The Workshop attracted around 180 delegates from all over the world. There were three tutorial speakers namely John Ballato from Clemson University, USA, Yoel Fink from MIT, USA and Philip Russell from the Max Planck Institute in Germany. Many attendees commented on the quality and variety of the work taking place currently on specialty fibers at the moment. The talks and posters covered topics including Photonic Crystal Fibers, Fiber Sensors, Nonlinear optics, and Fiber lasers.
Arden’s VFI-1200 was available in the exhibition area for delegates to bring their own fiber samples so they could have a look at the structure with both a high magnification inspection mode and interferometrically.
