DiCon's MEMS Split and Select Paves a New Road to Directionless ROADM Network Management

Richmond, CA - DiCon Fiberoptics' MEMS Split and Select paves a new road to directionless traffic management in ROADM networks. Optical splitters simultaneously broadcast incoming signals to an array of DiCon's well-recognized MEMS 1xN Switches. As each switch selects from all the signals, any signal can be routed to one or more output ports. The signals may be directed through the switches to...

DiCon Fiberoptics Collaborates with Caltech to Customize Critical Optical Switches for Monitoring 76,000 PWO Crystals at the Large Hadron Collider

Richmond, CA - The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) operated by CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) is the world's largest particle accelerator. Stretching 17 miles long, the LHC boosts protons to nearly light speed and smashes them together for a glimpse of the Higgs boson, or God Particle." Caltech participates in one of the four major experiments at the LHC, Compact Muon Solenoid...
