Product information "START/ALIGN Alignment Kits and Tools"
For Pigtail-style or Receptacle-Style Couplers (FC, FC/APC, FC/AFC, ST, SC, or Angled SC); Wavelength Ranges 180-700, 400-1600 nm; Includes MM Patchcord or Fiber Assembly, Collimating Wrench (ALIGN), Polarization Alignment Jig (POL-ALIGN) and Video/DVD
Key to successful alignment of any laser to fiber coupler is the initial task of getting the focused light to strike the core of the single mode (SM) or polarization maintaining (PM) fiber. OZ Optics' START alignment kits for laser to fiber couplers and ALIGN alignment kits for laser diode to fiber couplers simplify this task significantly by first using a multi mode (MM) fiber with a larger, relatively easy to target 50 µm core as the output fiber. Then by observing the output pattern from the MM fiber, one can improve the alignment, so the light is striking very close to the center of the fiber. Once this alignment is optimized, the MM fiber is removed and replaced with the SM or PM fiber. If done correctly, it should only take minor adjustments to successfully couple light into the SM or PM fiber.
A video or DVD clearly shows how to align laser and laser diode to fiber couplers using these kits in a clear, step-by-step fashion. START and ALIGN alignment kits are available for both receptacle- and pigtail-style laser to fiber couplers.
Perhaps the most difficult task is to align the polarization axis of lasers to the polarization axis of PM fibers. The POL-ALIGN polarization alignment tool makes this adjustment in seconds. The tool consists of a connector that fits the receptacle on the laser to fiber coupler. Inside the connector is a polarizer, aligned 90 degrees to the key on the connector.
A laser to fiber coupler’s tilt screws and locking screws must be tightened with just the correct torque. To address this concern, a dedicated torque screwdriver is available.
