Challenges And Opportunities Of Space Engineering In The 2020s And Beyond

In this interview, Matt Welch, G&H’s chief engineer of fiber optic systems, shares his thoughts on the challenges of space engineering in the 2020s and highlights recent projects and developments that have shown the viability of new ways forward.

Flat Top, Ultra-Narrow Bandpass Optical Filters Using Plasma Deposited Hard Oxide Coatings

Alluxa’s new class of ultra-narrow filters are designed for applications such as laser cleanup, LiDAR, telecommunications, and instrumentation. They also offer the narrowest and “squarest” filter profiles in the visible and NIR, as well as transmission levels that approach 100%.

The Magic Word: Bandwidth

Since the beginning of digitization at the end of the 20th century, the development of networks has been dominated by one topic: bandwidth. Where once telephone, data, and moving images were transmitted across different paths, triple play has now become widely accepted.
