Dec 2005Qioptiq Photonics GmbH & Co. KG
Linos GmbH & Co. KG has developed the FCS fiber-coupling system that can be readily and efficiently coupled with optical fibers. It consists of a coupler, a single-mode or polarization-maintaining fiber, and a collimator with diffraction-limited beam collimation. Transmission over the visible range, from 450 to 640 nm, is more than 65% and, for individually selected wavelengths, transmission of up to 80% can be achieved. Applications include measurement technology, biological analysis, medical diagnosis, and fluorescence and laser scanning microscopy.
