Product Introduction


Slow Axis Collimators(SAC)

PowerPhotonic’s range of slow axis collimator (SAC) optics are used to reduce the slow axis divergence of diode lasers. They consist of a monolithic array of cylindrical lenses to simplify system alignment, and are available in a range of standard focal lengths and pitch combinations.


Key Features

• Monolithic design

• Efficient collimation

• Transmission >99%

• Long term mechanical stability

• Customization options

• UV-fused silica


PowerPhotonic Ltd. was formed in 2004 to commercialize the technology from fundamental research undertaken at the world renowned Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. With operations in the United Kingdom and North America, we are well positioned to support companies across the globe. 
The PowerPhotonic manufacturing process is based on a laser system that shapes and then smooths the refractive surface of fused silica glass. This gives us unprecedented flexibility to create a complete range of standard products including slow and fast axis collimators, lens arrays, beam shapers, transformers and correctors, as well as offering a cost effective custom micro-optics design service called LightForge™.
