Space-Qualified Fiber Collimators

LightPath Technologies Inc.Request Info
 
LightPath Technologies is pleased to announce the capability to manufacture high performance Fusion collimators for space and other demanding environments.

These space-qualified collimators are built to withstand harsh environments, including high dosages of radiation, extreme temperatures and low outgassing in vacuum conditions. These fiber collimators also incorporate LightPath’s proprietary Fusion technology, in which the fiber is fused directly to a silica pellet, allowing light to expand before it meets the air interface. This expansion greatly reduces the power density at that interface and makes the collimator more reliable, especially against damage due to contamination in the optical path.

LightPath’s products have a long history of space use. Previously manufactured optical components been used on the space shuttle, the International Space Station, and various defense and commercial satellites. LightPath is also capable of handling programs that are subject to ITAR requirements.

GLOSSARY
collimator
An optical instrument consisting of a well- corrected objective lens or mirror with a light source and or object/image (i.e. illuminated slit or retical) at its focal plane. Collimators are used to calibrate and align optical devices and elements, determine focal lengths, as well as replicate and project an source/object or image to infinity.  
fusion
1. The combination of the effects of two or more stimuli in any given sense to form a single sensation. With respect to vision, the perception of continuous illumination formed by the rapid successive presentation of light flashes at a specified rate. 2. The transition of matter from solid to liquid form. 3. With respect to atomic or nuclear fusion, the combination of atomic nuclei, under extreme heat, to form a heavier nucleus.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
