Edge Coupled "T" Alignment System
Overview

The Luminos Edge Coupled “T” Alignment System is configurable for through-channel optical alignment of single channel and multiple channel fiber arrays, to various planar waveguide substrates. The “T” configuration denotes the use of Input & Output alignment stages with fiber holders, and a Center stage with a substrate holder, such as a vacuum part holder.

The high stiffness and stability of Luminos Positioners makes ultra-precise alignments possible. Luminos dual compensated flexure systems allow for manual or automated alignment of assemblies with mode fields as small as 1-2µm. The complete Luminos Edge Coupled "T" Alignment System as shown is available for your application for less than the cost of a typical isolation station.
