Intelligent Fiber-Collimator Arrays

At a glance

The first commercially available fiber-array adaptive laser beam transmitter system. The INFA is composed of a densely-packed array of adaptive fiber optic collimators for coherent and incoherent beam combining. The INFA was named a finalist in the SPIE's prestigious Prism Awards for 2015 in the category of Scientific Lasers.

INFA key features and benefits:

  • Compact, lightweight and scalable output power and aperture size
  • Output power per fiber collimator up to 10 W
  • Built-in capabilities for precision pointing and re-focusing of the outgoing combined beam, and compensation of mechanical and acoustic jitter
  • Adaptive mitigation of turbulence induced phase aberrations
  • Hardware and software flexibility

Multiple applications

  • Laser beam projection
  • Free-space laser communications
  • Smart optical sensing
  • Active illumination
  • Active imaging
  • Laser tracking
  • Remote sensing
  • Beam control
