The FC/PC fiber coupler mounts directly to our Laboratory and OEM laser modules, allowing for easy attachment of a fiber optic cable with a male FC/PC connector. The coupler uses optics to focus the laser beam down to a very small spot at the fiber aperture, allowing for optimal coupling efficiency to fibers with core diameters as small as 5 microns. The fiber cable can be easily attached and removed with minimal readjustment. If the fiber tip is not perfectly aligned with the focal point of the coupler, the user can adjust the coupling alignment to achieve the desired coupling efficiency.
The coupler can also function as a collimator at the fiber's output end. This allows for a laser beam to exit the fiber into free space with minimal divergence. Divergence, diameter, and other beam characteristics will be different from the original input beam. Please contact us if you have questions about the output from a fiber or collimator.
Anti-reflective coated optics for maximum transmission efficiency.
User-adjustable alignment of coupling optics in 3 axes (x,y,z).
Threads directly on to the laser aperture, no tools required.
Can be purchased separately, or installed on a laser and aligned to a given fiber type.
