For tactical operations in harsh conditions choosing the right fiber optic cable is of great importance. Please see our latest whitepaper that will guide you to choose the right fiber optic cable for your operation.
Micropol Fiberoptic demonstrates research project at OFC Conference
Micropol presents research project at OFC Conference.
Micropol has together with Chalmers University of Technology and Swedish Defense Material Administration during the OFC conference in San Diego demonstrated a joint research project. The team has demonstrated that eavesdropping on SM or MM fiber can be detected by analyzing changes of polarization in in the fiber.
Fiber optical based infrastructures are today carrying high traffic volumes and plays a vital role in society. The threat from sabotage leading to disruption of the transmitted data may seriously affect the information society of today.
It’s a well-known that eavesdropping on SM or MM fiber can occur and
systems that relay on the changes in attenuation have trouble detecting these attempts.
Testing equipment during the demo session.
The method to detect polarization changes can be used to prevent eavesdropping attempts. Micropol Fiberoptics are currently using the technology to develop the next generation of fiber optic alarms which will be key for securing the fiber optic infrastructure of the future.
For further details regarding the project please see attached research poster presented at OFC

Micropol Fiberoptic is growing rapidly, evident in the fact that we have never before onboarded so many new colleagues in such a short period of time. We have therefore recruited Ida Söderblom as the company’s first Human Resource Manager.
