APEquamm provide a wide range of optics for collimation and correcting of laser diode bars and stacks. Our slow-axis collimators and smile correctors are used to increase brightness in HPDL-based systems, and our HPDL brightness optimizers offer the highest achievable brightness for the most demanding applications. We also provide systems for HPDL beam symmetrization, to maximize fiber-coupled efficiency.
Multi-channel optical communication systems require microlens arrays for coupling between laser sources, fiber and waveguide arrays, optical multiplexing and optical switching. APEquamm’s microlens arrays are the ideal lens solution, providing a precise and monolithic component for array collimation and coupling. Made from synthetic fused silica, these lenses entirely avoid the need for polymer or epoxy in the optical path, offering a high-reliability solution for demanding optical communications applications with very low insertion loss and high coupling efficiency.
