The XY ﬁber launchers unique ﬂexure design means you wont have to worry about hysteresis. Perfect for coupling light into or out of multimode ﬁbers, it can be mounted on a ﬂat surface or onto a post or pedestal riser. A nylon-tipped locking setscrew holds the ﬁber chuck in place. You can also use the Model 9051 with the Model 9092 coupler body to hold microscope objectives on the positioner.
The ﬁber launcher combines our Model 9051 XY ﬁber positioner (above) with a modiﬁed Model 9807 mirror mount (Standard and Pint-Sized Mirror Mounts), resulting in an inexpensive ﬁve-axis multimode-ﬁber launcher with 4.4-µm resolution. The mirror mount contributes tilt and Z translation to the XY motion of the ﬂexure mount, resulting in a total of ﬁve degrees of freedom.
Similar to our Model 9091 single-mode-ﬁber positioner (Post-Mount Singlemode Fiber Aligners), our Tiny ﬁber positioner achieves superior stability by mounting a single stage within a solid base and following pure kinematic principles to move the stage. Five degrees of freedom are obtained with minimal slop or error. Perfect for applications where you need precision but dont have a lot of space.
