Fisba Optik has introduced a new fast axis collimator (FAC) with total internal reflection (TIR), capable of deflecting beams to an angle of 90°.
The collimator's integrated intelligent micro-optic components make it suitable for compact designs, and the flexibility of the optic design allows the device's focal length to be customised to suit each application, with focal lengths up to 1.5mm.
The new TIR-FAC lens with the integrated beam-shaping optic features an almost diffraction limited collimation as well as a superior surface quality to avoid scattering losses. The high-performance coating allows best possible transmission optimised to the laser diode wavelength. All of these advantages ensure a high brightness beam quality as well as higher performance and efficiency than conventional solutions. Thanks to the improved optical output, this solution maximises the optical performance per unit cost.
