Waveguide Alignment Systems

Elliot|Martock has designed two flexure stage based assemblies for the precise alignment of both input and output fibres to an optical waveguide device. The MDE881 Professional Workstation is offered in a choice of standard or long travel motion. For applications where the geometry of the MDE881 is not suitable, Elliot Scientific offers the system as key component parts to allowing custom set-ups to be configured on an optical table or breadboard.
