Axetris Micro-Lenses For Communication Devices

High speed data centers as well as the transition for the next generation 5G network require the deployment of ever-increasing numbers

Coherent - ICRs, ACOs, Modulators, μITLAs and WSS as well as Silicon Photonics (SIP) and PICs. Due to the high refractive index of silicon, Axetris’ micro-lenses are ideal for highly efficient coupling for 100G/400G/800G and beyond. Customers benefit from precise lens profile and pitch control, high surface quality for high coupling efficiency, ultra-compact size for high integration and cost-effective wafer level manufacturing.

of transceivers. Heart of each transceiver is the transmitter optical subassembly (TOSA) in combination with the receiver optical

subassembly (ROSA). Both are realizing the interface between electrical and optical signal transmission. With its micro-optic lenses in silicon and fused silica Axetris is already a part of this huge network of data transfer. Micro-Optics are used in a variety of telecom applications for fiber coupling and collimation, single-lens and lens-arrays in TOSAs & ROSAs,

Axetris micro-lenses are ideal for TOSA/ROSA modules.
