The model MDE705 Fibre Holder is designed to cradle 125/250 µm fibre (US: fiber) with a jacket up to 1 mm diameter. The unit utilises a slotted vacuum V-groove that holds the 125/250 µm bare fibre evenly, together with a clamp arm that grips the fibre jacket. The clamp force of the arm can be adjusted to relieve the pull of the trailing cable. These features combine to produce very low forces on the fibre.
The fibre holder is designed to complement the Elliot Gold™ series XYZ flexure stages, but can also be mounted on a conventional 25 mm pitch optical table using adaptor plate MDE860, or M4 post using the same adaptor.
A comprehensive range of fibre holders using vacuum, magnet or spring-loaded clamps is available. User replaceable V-grooves enable the user to work with different fibre sizes economically. Custom grooves are our speciality.
All accessories are compatible with the Elliot Gold™ series flexure stages. The optical axis height is 18 mm above the platform surface and on the centre line of the location slot. Where necessary a locating tongue forms part of the accessory. A standard clamp system is used and is supplied with the flexure stages and accessory platforms. The clamp set (MDE154) is available separately if required.
