Optical communication is an important infrastructure of our network society. It supports undersea, long-haul, metro, access and mobile network around the world. Its broadband capability is applied for connecting computers and consumer electronics. Santec provides key optical devices and subsystems used for these applications.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a new 3D imaging technology that uses infrared light to provide a safe, high speed, high resolution method to analyze the microscopic structure of biological tissues. Rather than harmful X-ray radiation, this imaging method relies on safe, low levels of infrared light. This non-invasive technique penetrates a few inches from the surface allowing for high speed 3-D visualization to provide on-site real time diagnosis.
Santec develops and manufactures a variety of fiber-optic devices for various applications. Manually controlled or electronically driven, these optical devices can be used for attenuation, filtering, and monitoring and are suitable for fiber optic applications in research, development or system integration.
Optical technology is useful for test and measurement of manufacturing, production and analysis. Santec provides various optical performance T&M instruments and also provides visual inspection system using OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) technology.
Optical fiber is also used for networking digital equipment. Optical fiber has a broadband, low loss transmission, favorable for short reach, high speed digital data links connecting computers and audio visual equipment.
