MH GoPower (MHGP) manufactures high performance Si-based Vertical Multi-Junction PV cells that enable laser power transmission for power over fiber (PoF).
The Power over Fiber (PoF) technology is a novel power delivery system which delivers electrical power by sending laser light through lightweight, non-conductive fiber optic cable to a remote photovoltaic receiver or photovoltaic power converter to power remote sensors or electrical devices.
A known disadvantage of OTDR’s is the presence of a deadzone in which the interrogator is momentarily blind to measuring reflected energy. This deadzone manifests itself in a relatively high spatial resolution. Spatial resolution is the ability to detect closely spaced events along the length of a fiber network. Deadzones are typically in the order of meters and this makes OTDR unsuitable for applications where low spatial resolution or high accuracy is required.
