Designed for the most demanding rotation and alignment of angular sensitive components. It can be used anywhere that stable, accurate fibre (US: fiber) rotation is needed.
The popular MDE717 fibre rotator is an updated version of the original and offers the same highly accurate rotation in a more stable package.
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.
