This system is configured from our MAX313 three-axis flexure stage fitted with an FC adapter and grin lens holder. When considering a fiber launch system, the use of nested flexure plates in place of more traditional linear bearings provides a number of advantages. First, the nearly perfect, smooth, continuous motion that is achievable with a flexure mechanism, and second, the elimination of all lubricants within the stage structure. With traditional bearings, minor imperfections in the bearing or contaminates trapped in the lubricant create localized “rough spots” where the displacement resolution degrades significantly. The lack of lubricants also minimizes stage “creep”.
