Fast-Axis Collimation

INGENERIC FAC

The most important optical component in the beam shaping systems in high-power diode lasers is the Fast-Axis Collimation optic. The lenses are manufactured from high-quality glass and have an acylindrical surface. Their high numerical aperture permits the entire diode output to be collimated with outstanding beam quality. The high transmission and excellent collimation characteristics guarantee the highest levels of beam shaping efficiency for diode lasers.

INGENERIC FAI

By means of an FAI lens, the emitter can be directly imaged into a fiber or a target plane. The design of INGENERIC’s FAI lenses is optimized for this specific application and allows an efficient and aberration-free imaging of the emitter 

Product Spectrum

In order to offer the best solution for your application INGENERIC provides a broad spectrum of Fast-Axis Collimation optics from the shelf. Years of development allow us to provide optimized acylindrical lenses for different applications. Based on our sophisticated technologies and substantial experience we are further able to provide FAC lenses with 90° deflection.With respect to length or support structures the lenses can be tailored to your specific needs. For details please refer to the technical specifications in the INGENERIC product data sheet.
  • Advantages
  • application-optimized design
  • high numerical aperture (NA 0.8)
  • diffraction-limited collimation
  • transmission up to 99%
  • highest level of precision and uniformity
  • manufacturing process is highly economical for large quantities
  • reliable and stable quality
 

Quality

We operate a strict quality control policy. By testing the lenses in an enviroment identical to the conditions they will encounter in industrial practice, we ensure that there is no discrepancy between our test results and the results subsequently achieved, when our optic is used within its intended application at your site. In conjunction with our sophisticated manufacturing technology, this guarantees the production of optics with unsurpassed collimation and homogenization characteristics
