  5. Advanced Fiber Alignment Engines For Photonic Packaging Automation
    3/4/2013

    In the earliest days of optical telecommunications more than two decades ago, the physical alignment of single-mode optical fibers, laser diodes, and early planar waveguide devices was a meticulous and frustrating task. Researchers and engineers spent countless hours hunched over coupling assemblies, adjusting micrometers and setscrews of manual fiber positioners to peak-up optical coupling for a short while, until drift processes necessitated re-alignment. It was a tedious and repetitive chore. By Scott Jordan and Stefan Vorndran, PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P.
