OpTek Systems’ LaserCleave™-Lens/Wedge laser lensing tools offer unparalleled performance in the production of lensed optical fiber.
Processing of polarization maintaining (PM), single mode (SM) and multi mode (MM) fiber is fast, accurate and reliable, with processing times at a fraction of that required for grind and polish, and first-pass yield at 99.9%. Spherical, aspheric and asymmetric lenses are laser-machined for high-efficiency coupling, improving your product performance while reducing manufacturing costs.
OpTek’s laser lensing tools are available in two versions:
LaserCleave™-Lens conical lenser for spherical & aspheric lenses
LaserCleave™-Wedge wedge/bi-conic lenser for asymmetric lenses
OpTek LaserCleave™-Lens/Wedge laser lensing systems machine a high-performance lens directly onto the end of an optical fiber. Asymmetric lenses are produced using feedback from on-line far field measurements to ensure accurate centring of the lens on the fiber core.
The non-contact process is incredibly fast and uses on-line imaging to ensure accurate centration of the lens to the fiber. The superior optical quality of the surface and exceptional control over the lens ensures maximum coupling.
