Welcome to the 2018 edition of the General Photonics catalog.
I am excited to announce that with the efforts in the past two years, we have added multiple advanced products to expand our product portfolio, including the Optical Component Analyzer for characterizing the performances of multi-port optical components, the polarization analyzing OFDR to measure the stresses along an optical path with high spatial resolution, and the 3D optical non-destructive evaluation (NDE) system for composite material inspection. We have also added the capability to measure the circular birefringence of spun fibers for the current sensing market. Finally, we have developed a full array of optical fiber coil products with the highest performance for fiber optic gyros, current sensors, acoustic sensors, and microwave photonics systems, thanks to our unparalleled capabilities in, and deep understanding of, polarization measurements. With more than 52 issued US patents, numerous pending applications, and an array of innovative products, General Photonics is proud to maintain its lead in the fields of polarization management and delay/timing control, and expand our product offerings in the composite industry and sensing systems. I am confident that you will find this catalog and the products included herein of great value to your endeavors in product development, production, quality control, system integration, and advanced research. In recognition of the merit of our technology and products, the Photonics Circle of Excellence Award - an honor conferred only on the 25 most innovative products in the industry - has been awarded to our dynamic polarization controller module and dynamic differential group delay module in 2000 and 2001, respectively. In addition, our PMD-1000 received the 2010 CLEO/Laser Focus World Innovation Award and the 2009 Frost & Sullivan PMD Test Equipment Emerging Company of the Year Award. All of us at General Photonics are committed to quality, performance, innovation, and customer satisfaction. Please feel free to contact us if you have any issues regarding polarization or timing management and measurement. Chances are you will find satisfactory solutions here at General Photonics. Thank you for considering us.
