Leading optical fibber manufacturer Fiberguide Industries has introduced a line of standard collimators and focus guides for use with a wide variety of optical systems.
Designed to collimate or focus light exiting an optical fibre to a desired beam diameter, the collimators can be used with laser diodes, photodiodes, acoustic-optic modulators and other fibber optic devices. Focus guides thread into the collimator, refocusing the beam at a given distance. Collimators and focus guides can be used as matched pairs to couple light in and out of optical devices.
The ruggedised modules are manufactured to accept SMA, ST, FC or machined ferrule style connectors. Assembled and preset to meet required specifications, all collimators and focus guides can be adjusted to provide the flexibility necessary for customers’ specified set ups.
Collimators are available in three sizes: the macro collimator for optical fibber core sizes larger than 800?m diameter, the mid-size collimator for sizes up to 800?m diameter, and the micro collimators for fibres up to 400?m diameter. Focus guides are available for the macro and mid-size collimators.
Fiberguide Industries, Inc manufactures a comprehensive line of standard and custom high optical transmission fibres and ultra precision arrays. The company is a subsidiary of the global technology group Halma p.l.c., which also includes photonics specialists Ocean Optics (www.oceanoptics.com), a leader in spectroscopy and optical thin films, and Labsphere, a recognised expert in the light metrology field.
