Micro Laser Systems further expand range with Fixed Wavelength and Fused Silica collimators

The Micro Laser Systems‘ FC Series of standard collimators are designed specifically for single mode fibre, polarisation maintaining fibre, and fibre laser applications requiring a pure Gaussian beam. The company has further expanded its range by offering several new designs.

All collimators

Fixed Wavelength
The FCX20 series is based on the standard FC20 Fibre Collimator but fixed at one wavelength. They offer a highly collimated, Gaussian beam with low wavefront error and are readily available in several popular wavelengths. The FCX20 comes with a 3 mm cable terminated with an FC or FC/APC connector.

Fused Silica
The FC5S and FC10S Fused Silica versions are of a multi-element design that delivers a highly collimated, Gaussian beam with low wavefront error. The lockable adjustable focus feature enables focusing a very tight spot at a great distance, or expansion of the beam to illuminate an area.

Micro Laser Systems is also able to manufacture custom collimators, being responsible for the whole project from design, through manufacturing, to final assembly and test. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.


Micro Laser Systems expand range with UV, RGB and custom collimators

The Micro Laser Systems‘ FC Series of standard collimators are designed specifically for single mode fibre, polarisation maintaining fibre, and fibre laser applications requiring a pure Gaussian beam. The company has now added to this range by offering three new designs and a customisation service.

All collimatorsOptimised for UV applications in glass or fused silica, the FC5-UV has been specially coated for the 350 to 410 nm wavelength range. The lens system is also well corrected to give excellent beam quality and minimise fluorescence. An apochromatic collimator has also been developed for simultaneous transmission of RGB wavelengths without any distortion. Applications include projection systems, flow cytometry and microscopy.

Completing the line-up is the Fibre Focuser. Based on the FC10, it can accommodate various focusing optics and can therefore be optimised for single mode fibre, polarisation maintaining (PM) fibre, or large mode area (LMA) fibre. The multi-element design provides a tightly focused spot with good working distances. Custom Fibre Focusers can be produced for any focal length, spot size, or particular wavelength. They can also include other optical elements such as filters, polarisers, or windows. 

Micro Laser Systems is well positioned to manufacture custom collimators as they are responsible for the whole project: from design, through manufacturing, to final assembly and test. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
