FRM2: Fiber Rotator
- Adjustable Center of Rotation
- Zero-Backlash Bearing
- 360 Degree Continuous Rotation
- Holders for Bare and Mounted Fibers
- Compatible with Luminos Positioning Stages
With positioning this easy... the possibilities are endless.
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.
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.
For determining angular movements, the Rotator is equipped with a graduated dial
marked at 10 degree intervals.
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/I6000 stage.
The rotator mounting holes are compatible with any of the I3000, I5000, I6000 series
