Title (EN) FIBER BALL LENS APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ À LENTILLE SPHÉRIQUE POUR FIBRE
Abstract:
(EN) A method for producing a ball lens including determining a feed length of optical fiber based on a target ball lens diameter; providing heat energy to a heating zone; moving, at a predetermined speed, one of the optical fiber and the heating zone so that the end of the optical enters the heating zone to heat the end of the optical fiber; and stopping the heating of the end of the optical fiber when the amount of moving the one of the optical fiber and the heating zone equals the determined feed length.
(FR) On décrit un procédé de production d'une lentille sphérique, comportant les étapes consistant à déterminer une longueur d'avance de fibre optique en se basant sur un diamètre cible de lentille sphérique ; apporter de l'énergie thermique à une zone de chauffe ; déplacer, à une vitesse prédéterminée, la fibre optique ou la zone de chauffe de telle sorte que l'extrémité de la fibre optique pénètre dans la zone de chauffe afin de chauffer l'extrémité de la fibre optique ; et interrompre la chauffe de l'extrémité de la fibre optique lorsque l'ampleur du déplacement de la fibre optique ou de la zone de chauffe atteint la longueur d'avance déterminée.
