Paper Abstract

The industrial assembly processes for fast axis collimation (FAC) lenses with high power laser diodes are continuously being improved and automated. The system requirements allow for various solutions for the attachment process of the micro-optic component, the standard being active assembly relative to the light emitting laser-diode facet with joining by a UV-curable glue at attachment positions outside of the laser beam-path. To facilitate higher degrees of freedom and to optimize the results in the joining process with tighter tolerances in some critical functions, the FAC mounted on tab is one of the possible solutions and a viable process option. We report the results of high accuracy preassembly of FAC on tab with respect to the specific requirement of a target assembly back focal length within tight tolerance values.
