About us

MicroAlign enables fiber array alignment with the highest accuracy

MicroAlign is developing a revolutionary alignment solution to optimally connect multiple optical fibers and photonic integrated chips. Several photonic components and applications ranging from optical switches, amplifiers, laser arrays, co-packaged optics, to quantum computers, require an increasing number of optical fiber connections with demanding sub-micron positioning accuracy for all the fibers. MicroAlign allows you to achieve the best fiber array alignment accuracy to optimize your total coupling efficiency with an alignment time of a few seconds.

About MicroAlign solution

MicroAlign is developing a revolutionary alignment solution to optimally connect multiple optical fibers and photonics integrated chips.

The problem

Optimal coupling between optical fiber arrays and photonic chips is limited by the core positioning imperfections in fiber arrays.

The solution

The MicroAlign micro actuator provides per-fiber alignment capabilities and can suppress residual misalignment losses due to fiber eccentricity.

The application

The MicroAlign actuation technology, together with the developed control electronics and software, will enable fast and accurate fiber array alignment, in wafer testing and photonic assembly equipment.
