Nanometer Technologies was born through research at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs in Pasadena Ca. Our first product was a variable fiber optic attenuator.
This attenuator was designed by Mike Buzzetti during the early 1990’s. It was of the bent fiber type (light loss by bending of fiber) and was subsequently patented by Mike Buzzetti and CAL TECH/NASA Mike Buzzetti then obtained a license for this patent and started Nanometer Technologies.
Since it’s inception in 1993, Nanometer Technologies has developed and produced a line of innovative products including a complete line of fiber optic polishers starting with the industries first patented figure 8 polisher.
The last couple of years has been spent developing a complete automated fiber inspection station (AFiS). These automated inspection systems have been patented as well.
Nanometer Technologies vision is towards the future and it’s customers, our goal is to provide the industry with innovative and cost reducing products for the long term.
