Connector Options

Optical assemblies are available with mating connectors for either SMA or FC terminated fiber cables.


Mounting Options

Coupling optics can be mounted to an optical bench (i.e., free-space) or directly to a Daylight Solutions laser head. Free-space (FS) versions are available with either metric (M4) or imperial (#8-32) threads for attaching to a post. Our standard Daylight (DL) mount attaches to the laser head of CW/Pulsed, Unicorn, and Uber-Tuner models and can also be used on Mode Hop-Free models with an adapter. A different version (DMC) is available for direct mounting to the Daylight MIRcat laser, although this requires manufacturer modifications to the MIRcat housing. If there are any questions, please provide your specific laser model #, and we will let you know which mount is appropriate.

OAP Assemblies

For highly broadband applications, as well as those in which back reflections from an AR coated lens are a concern, we offer optical assemblies that utilize off-axis-parabolic (OAP) mirrors instead of lenses. Note: OAP assemblies are more difficult to align than lens assemblies. If an OAP is required, please inquire about available options.

Collimation/Focusing Assemblies

OptoKnowledge can design custom optics that are optimized for the low-divergence output beam exiting a hollow fiber. This includes simple single lens designs for collimation, as well as, complex high-NA, multi-element designs for focusing to a diffraction limited spot.
