Simple locking of free-space laser beams to single-mode fibres

A white paper from TEM Messtechnik
This white paper describes the FiberLock, a simple system for locking free-space laser beams to single-mode fibres. This system simplifies the initial coupling, helps with optimizing the coupling efficiency and actively compensates for mechanical drifts. In this way, it offers an affordable alternative to and improvement over high-precision mechanical mounts typically used for fibre coupling.
