High-power & high-precision collimator for hollow-core fibers

Since 2007, ALPhANOV has built a solid expertise in modelling, designing and prototyping of innovative fiber laser sources and components.

 

 

 

Our PowerPAC connector offers a highly precise connector for single-mode hollow-core fibers (*). It includes a collimator, which can withstand more than 100 Watts of injected power. It is particularly suitable for beam delivery based on hollow-core fibers, for instance in the femtosecond regime.

 

Features:

  • 100W-class in femtosecond regime
  • Plug-and-play (high repeatability)
  • Passive cooling (active cooling on-demand)
