The model MDE715 Fibre Holder is designed to cradle bare fibre (US: fiber) ranging from 125 to 400 µm diameter. The unit utilises a slotted vacuum V-groove that holds the fibre evenly and with very low force.
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.
