The NanoGlue systems combine precise pick and place with active or passive alignment of components which are attached by epoxy gluing. In case of active alignment, ultrafast routines cut process times to a minimum.
Active feedback signals can be optical power, beam steering or any other varying measurement signal which can be read via a standard interface.
NanoGlue is tailored to the desired development and production taks in its mechnical design and the instrumentation. If the station is used for research and development also other joining methods, such as laser soldering or laser welding can be integrated into the set-up.
NanoGlue is used for PLC and waveguides based on InP, LiNBO3, Silicon Photonics, SiO2 and other materials as well as for diode lasers and photo detectors (including 2-dimensional arrays) with optical fiber arrays and other optics.
