multicube™ – Components and Systems

The design features of the Schäfter+Kirchhoff "multicube" components ensure highly rugged and warp-resistant setups, especially for singlemode fiber coupling. The "multicubes" are combined and fixed using four Ø 6 mm rods in parallel and are compatible with established microbench systems. The rods are located in full through-holes or partial blind-holes at least 2 diameters deep (12 mm). Each rod is locked using two M3 screws (1.5 mm Hex screwdriver) that are radially opposed across the "multicube", eliminating any distortion and ensuring highly reproducible results and assemblies.

The "multicube" construction system is the perfect integration platform for laser beam couplers, beam combiners, beam splitters, polarizers or retardation optics. Self-supporting modules and laser beam assemblies can be created that are extremely resistant to torsion and contain complementary components, such as the laser diode collimator 48TA… and Faraday isolator 48FI-… on the mounting bracket 48MB.
