Linear Microlens Arrays are available in fused silica and silicon substrates with linear arrays of either 4 or 8 lenses. Silicon has a high index of refraction, enabling short focal length, high-NA lens array designs, while fused silica offers excellent thermal stability and visible transmission to facilitate easy alignment. Linear Microlens Arrays are used to collimate and couple fiber arrays in fiber-to-fiber or laser-to-fiber applications, such as with semiconductor laser diodes. These lenses are AR coated for the near-infrared (NIR) with designs for 1310 and 1550nm, making them ideal for use with NIR lasers or in telecommunications.
