Title (EN) OPTICAL ASSEMBLY FOR REPETITIVE COUPLING AND UNCOUPLING
(FR) ENSEMBLE OPTIQUE POUR COUPLAGES ET DECOUPLAGES REPETITIFS
Abstract:
(EN) There is provided an optical assembly (100) comprising an optical fiber arrangement (220, 230) and a lens arrangement (120). The lens arrangement (120) is spatially disposed relative to the fiber arrangement (220, 230) so as to be capable of providing an axial substantially collimated beam of radiation in response to receiving radiation from the optical fiber arrangement (220, 230) and capable of providing a focused beam of radiation to the optical fiber arrangement (220, 330) in response to receiving substantially collimated radiation to the lens arrangement (120). The assembly (100) further comprises a configuration of elements (110, 130, 200, 260) for spatially disposing the optical fiber arrangement (220, 230) relative to the lens arrangement (120). The configuration of elements (110, 130, 200, 260) provides for independent adjustment of relative lateral position between the optical fiber arrangement (220, 230) and the lens arrangement (120) in relation to axial position of the optical fiber arrangement (220, 230) relative to the lens arrangement (120). Such independent adjustment assists in fabrication of the assembly (100).
(FR) Ensemble optique (100) comprenant un dispositif à fibre optique (220, 230) et un dispositif à lentilles (120). Le dispositif à lentilles (120) est disposé spatialement par rapport au dispositif à fibre (220, 230) de manière à produire un rayonnement collimaté sensiblement axial en réponse à la réception d'un rayonnement provenant du dispositif à fibre optique (220, 230) et à émettre un faisceau concentré de rayons en direction du dispositif à fibre optique (220, 330) en réponse à la réception du rayon sensiblement collimaté dirigé vers lui. De plus, l'ensemble (100) comprend un ensemble d'éléments (110, 130, 200, 260) permettant de disposer spatialement le dispositif à fibre optique (220, 230) par rapport au dispositif à lentilles (120). Cet ensemble d'éléments (110, 130, 200, 260) permet un réglage indépendant de la position latérale relative entre le dispositif à fibre optique (220, 230) et le dispositif à lentille (120) par rapport à la position axiale du dispositif (220, 230) en relation avec le dispositif (120). Une telle possibilité de réglage indépendant facilite la fabrication de l'ensemble (100).
