Axsys and Loctite to Study Photonic Attach Methods
Mar 2002
ROCKY HILL, Conn., March 26 -- Axsys Technologies Inc., developer of micro-positioning and precision optical systems, and Loctite Corp., a manufacturer of high-performance adhesives, sealants and coatings, have announced a joint development program to develop optical attach methods for photonic devices such as AWGs, planar light circuits, collimators and modulators.

Axsys said the goal of the program is to empirically study adhesive performance in optical device assembly. Areas of study will include: optimizing dispense and cure process parameters to maximize throughput, adhesive-specific insertion loss characteristics, bond stability over a range of environmental conditions, and long-term life testing.

"This study will measure adhesive characteristics such as stability over time and automation suitability that are of critical importance to our customers and directly impact the performance of an optical device," said Gary Wagner, president of Axsys' Commercial Products Group.
