Variable Angle Tilt Stage

PROMET International (Shoreview, MN) has introduced the FiBO® Variable Angle Tilt Stage (VATS) with Bare Fiber (BF) Adapter for efficient bare fiber endface geometry testing. When used with the FiBO® 300 Interferometer, the VATS quickly verifies the nominal cleave angle of bare fiber. Reports are generated with a single click. The VATS has a high-precision kinematic interface, quick-release mechanism, and an easy-to-read Vernier degree scale.

Clear Aperture Beam Collimator

Optical Surfaces (Surrey, UK) has released a 235mm clear aperture beam collimator that can precisely measure the quality of the company’s imaging systems from the visible to the IR, using Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) criteria. The 235mm clear aperture beam collimator has an output wavefront error better than lambda/5 p-v, and an off-axis optical design that produces no central obscuration and delivers highly efficient transmission.
