Paper Abstract

A five-axis system was designed to automate the alignment of single mode fibers to optical sources such as laser diodes. This system combines 0.01 micron positioning resolution for maximizing the coupling efficiency into single mode fibers with a closed optical feedback loop to compensate for thermal and mechanical drift.
