The Slow-Axis Collimators consist of a monolithic array of cylindrical lenses. The very low curvature deviation of the individual lenses of the array ensures most efficient collimation of the light of all emitters of a laser bar for high power applications.
Thanks to the enhancements of the production process, LIMO has the capability of producing up to 300-mm glass wafers (12 inches x 12 inches). The result: several thousand SACs with consistently high optical quality can be made from just one of these wafers in series production.
- collimation of high-power diode lasers and fiber lasers
- fiber coupling
- SACs made of fused silica optimized for high-power blue wavelength range applications
