The Photonic Probe station is designed to allow flexible positioning of optical fibre to the device under test DUT. The fibre can be precisely positioned (course and fine adjustment) from vertical to 60 degrees from vertical. (we can also offer horizontal alignment. The pitch or theta can also be adjusted by ±12 degrees 0.05° resolution.
Using our EB-005 micropositioners we can offer you either 0.7µm (100TPI) or 0.35µm (200TPI) positioning in X, Y and Z axis.
5 axis of fibre positioning
Microscope X-Y panning ±25mm with optional microscope tilt.
Precision coaxial chuck stage
Fibre Optic, DC, RF and mmWave heads
Optional Heated Chuck
Optional Anti-vibration table or table-top.
The Photonic Probe station is designed to allow flexibility for the user to allow precise positioning of fibre at an affordable price.
We can offer 5-axis of positioning:
- X-Axis: 12mm of movement with an accuracy of 0.35µm (200TPI)
- Y-Axis: 12mm of movement with an accuracy of 0.35µm (200TPI)
- Z-Axis: 12mm of movement with an accuracy of 0.35µm (200TPI)
- Tilt: Angle can be set from 90 degrees (vertical) to around 60 degrees from vertical (optional horizontal positioning available on request)
- Pitch: The theta alignment of the fibre (back and forward) can be adjusted.
The fibre can also be rotated and then re-clamped to change the rotation, Everbeing can also help adapt this design to meet your exact probing needs. For complete flexibility and lower cost, the fibre is simply but firmly held in place using Kevlar Tape
Antivibration tables and table top Antivibration units.
Micropositioners: available in vacuum (V), permanent magnet (M) or our most popular choice magnet on/off (E).
