High-power Laser Diode Assembly

Where would we be without laser diodes
and the myriad devices that are made with them?

The laser diode is one of the most common devices used throughout photonics. The micro-assembly process calls for the placement and bonding of single or multiple laser diodes (stacked or complete bars), the placement, active alignment and bonding of necessary micro-optical elements, subsequent device testing, and ultimately packaging and quality control.

ficonTEC’s machine systems are capable of all the steps necessary for assembling laser diodes, even high-power devices. Multiple in-line systems can be configured to address entire process segments.
