Is your optical component testing future-proof?

François Couny

Product Line Manager

François Couny is Product Line Manager for EXFO Optics. He started his career in 2001 as a Test & Measurement engineer at Blaze Photonics, a start-up company specialized in Photonic Crystal Fibre and completed his Ph.D. in Photonics in 2008 at the Centre for Photonics and Photonic Material at the University of Bath (UK). He went on to join Yenista Optics in 2010 with a focus on developing tuneable laser sources and spectral solutions, including an Optical Spectrum Analyzer and also an optical component tester adapted to photonic integrated circuits characterization. Since 2015, François has been PLM for Yenista Optics, now part of EXFO as EXFO Optics.

 

The advent of 5G, accompanied by technologies like silicon photonics and other integrated optics, has triggered the rapid transformation of the testing requirements for passive optical components. There are new things to consider now with the appearance of WDM channels spaced closer together, optical filters with sharper spectrums or high-port-count optical components. Let’s take a look how to address these parametric testing challenges.
