The lever is a silver coated rod (can be a glass fiber). The coating is applied on the tip. If glass fiber, after the it has been properly cleaved silver is coated on one tip.
optical fiber coating: fiber preparation - cleaving and cleaning, coat glass fiber tip with silver
shrinking: assemble the lever with the delivery fiber.
Metallic mirror applied to the lever of a joint-type transducer. The mirror is applied in house by the optical fiber wet coating process.
Mirrors might be used in other types of transducers as well.
Optical fiber coating. At this moment we only have the wet coating process, perfected by Francois.
This process can be used for the joint-type transducer and for the constriction-type transducer.
Optical guide, can be of glass of polymer. Usually it comes in a cylindrical shape. Can be MM (multimode) or SM (single mode)
a device to perform wet silver coating
Type of work - Assembling or making of optical/photonics parts. This type of work requires some techniques and training. Manufacturing can be done manually or using some equipment. This is about making stuff to be exchanged on the market, or about making prototypes or demos, for marketing and sales purposes.
120 ml. see Silver Concentrate for details
see Silver concentrate for details
120 ml silver solution concentrate (AgNO3+NH3), must be mixed with silver activator (NaOH) + reducer (formaldehyde in methanol)
Microscopes are used to observe small objects. They come in many types.
improve double side mirrors coating
A precise, optical fiber-based displacement/force transducer. Used in the Mosquito Scientific Instrument. First designed and tested by Tibi and Ivan in 2010.
Quality control process of the mirror.
Type of work - Quality control type of work. This is a general category that applies for many manufacturing processes.
