Alignment of fiber optic systems for telecommunications

Optical switches, multiplexers and amplifiers represent interfaces in fiber optic transmission systems in which losses must be avoided while ensuring high coupling efficiencies.

Wavefront sensors are able to adjust transmission optics quickly and precisely. Using wavefront tilt and defocus, e.g.collimation optics or optics for fiber coupling can be set efficiently/effortlessly. The subsequent analysis of higher order aberrations enables further optimization and final qualification.

Manufacturers of fiber optic systems also use Shack-Hartmann sensors for automated, wavefront-based adjustment, thus ensuring for more efficiency in their processes.

Used worldwide in production, quality assurance and R&D, Optocraft’s wavefront measurement technology is pivotal to the improvement of optical processes and systems in telecommunications.
