Press release from Ibsen Photonics

Ibsen Photonics has released a new wavelength extended, high-resolution version of its I-MON Interrogation Monitor for FBG Sensor Systems

Copenhagen, Denmark – January 18th, 2007

Ibsen Photonics, a leading supplier of holographic Phase masks, fused silica transmission gratings and optical spectrometer modules based on transmission gratings, today announced it’s release of a new, extended wavelength version of it’s I-MON Interrogation Monitor.

The Interrogation Monitor builds on Ibsen high-resolution spec- trometer technology, utilizing Ibsen fused silica transmission gra- tings. This design platform enables Ibsen’s I-MON to offer fast mea- surement frequency and compact size as well as low power consumption.

I-MON Product Manager Bjarke Rose explains: “Our I-MON Interrogation Monitor modules have been deployed in the field for over 5 years, and so the I-MON has already been embraced by this growing market that we have designed the I-MON for.” He adds: “Last year we launched the I-MON 400E-USB, a high-resolution version of our I-MON targeted as stand-alone monitors with USB interface for easy setup with a laptop. Our customers received the new I-MON 400E very well, praising the high sensitivity, sub-picometer resolution and ease of use. With this new I-MON 512E-USB we further increase the wavelength range maintaining the high sensitivity, sub-picometer resolution and ease of use

Torben Jacobsen, President and CEO of Ibsen, adds: “This new I-MON development draws from the broad spectrometer competencies that lie in our OEM spectrometer business; this is an example of how our spectrometer and grating technologies are drawn upon to match the needs of fiber optic sensing applications with high-performing and cost-effective interrogation solutions.”

Ibsen will be presenting its I-MON products at the Photonics West exhibition January 23-25th in San Jose, as well as at other important sensing and photonics conferences throughout the year.
