Burleigh Instruments� (Victor, NY) new FR-3000 NanoRobot photonics alignment system offers fully automated precision alignment demanded by photonics applications. Unveiled at the recent National Fiber Optic Engineering Conference (NFOEC) in Baltimore, Maryland, the advanced six-axis photonics alignment system increases yield for manufacturers of photonic components.
The FR-3000 system incorporates Burleigh�s patented Inchworm technology to provide six automated degrees of freedom, high resolution, and long travel in a single stage. The combination of 0.1-nm resolution and 25 mm of travel is reportedly a vast improvement over systems that rely on cumbersome coarse/fine dual-stage designs.
The FR-3000 includes Burleigh�s ProPivot selectable rotational point software to simplify virtually any alignment process. The user-friendly software ensures that all rotation occurs around one point in space, either above or on any side of the FR-3000. This allows faster rotational alignment of complex components such as fiber arrays and arrayed waveguides.
