Overview
Luminos FRM2 Fiber Rotator

The Fiber Rotator combines a precision zero-backlash bearing assembly with a 2-axis tuning module to allow positioning the optical axis of a waveguide to within 1 micron of the rotational axis.

Adjustable Center of Rotation

The 2-dimensional tuning module enables accurate positioning of the center of the waveguide at the center of rotation, minimizing signal change during rotation. This adjustability allows a wide range of sample sizes to be accurately centered with a single holder. Utilizing a 2-axis flexure design, the tuning module provides high stability and precision alignment within 1 micron.

Zero-Backlash Bearing

A stable rotational axis is provided with the use of a custom designed zero-backlash multi-axis preloaded journal bearing. Bearing tolerances are held at zero with the use of flexure-based preload elements.

Angular Scale

For determining angular movements, the Rotator is equipped with a graduated dial marked at 10 degree intervals.

Luminos FRM2 Fiber Rotator
Compatible with Luminos Stages

Based on a nominal 2mm projection of the waveguide from the holder, the end of the waveguide is coincident with the rotation center of a Luminos I5000, I5005, I6000 or I6005 stage. The rotator mounting holes are compatible with Luminos I3000, I3005, I5000, I5005, I6000 and I6005 positioners.
