Product Introduction


Fast Axis Collimators Arrays(FACA)

PowerPhotonic’s range of fast axis collimator (FAC) lens arrays is designed to interface to complete laser diode stacks. They allow the entire diode stack output to be collimated with a single element, providing an ultra-compact and robust solution that radically simplifies the cost and time of assembly of the complete system.



• Single monolithic FAC array

• High beam quality for QCW stack collimation and beam symmetrization

• Fixed pitch increments, for select-on-test use

• Matched-pitch, to optimise collimation of a specific stack

• Single FAC element for a diode stack

• 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™.
