Panduit research deparment receives award
TINLEY PARK - Panduit Corp.'s Corporate Research and Development Fiber Research Department has received the International Cable & Connectivity Symposium's Jack Spergel Memorial Award for Outstanding Technical Paper 2015.
The department was honored for its' Characterization of Modal Dependence of MMF (multimode fiber) Chromatic Dispersion for Wideband MMF." The recognition was announced at this year's IWCS conference in Providence, Rhode Island and awards were presented to contributors Bulent Kose, Jose Castro, Ph.D., Rick Pimpinella, PH.D., Yu Huang, Ph.D., Alexander Berlan, Asher Novick and Brett Lane, Ph.D.
The paper develops the theoretical background, proposes an innovative test methodology, and provides experimental validation of a revolutionary characterization method applicable to next generation Wideband multimode fiber. The work was just a portion of Panduit's contribution to the development of Wideband MMF (for use in OM5 cable).
"This is a tremendous achievement for Panduit's fiber research team and shows the impact of Panduit's significant investment in our world class fiber lab," said Panduit President and CEO Tom Donovan. "Advancements in multimode fiber are critical to the industry and are inherent in Panduit's philosophy of developing technology for our customers which solve tomorrow's challenges today ."
