See PI’s pioneering alignment technology at ECOC

Delegates at this year’s European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2019) – from the 23rd to 25th September in Dublin – can see how Physik Instrumente’s cost-effective and space saving technologies and solutions are improving accuracy and productivity for manufacturers in the photonics industry.

PI has been developing and manufacturing products that demand exceptional precision across a broad dynamic range for over 40 years, and visitors to Stand #357 can discover how the company’s ground-breaking Fast Multi-Channel Photonics Alignment (FMPA) technology is revolutionising the probing, testing and packaging of silicon photonic devices. FMPA can simultaneously align multiple couplings and channels, across multiple degrees of freedom, even if they interact. It offers much higher speed and accuracy than traditional methods, reducing alignment times from hours down to a few seconds. This innovative solution is already significantly reducing operating costs and improving overall efficiency and scalability around the world, without compromising on device quality.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to see the F­712.HA2 High-Precision Double-Sided Fibre Alignment System in action – a perfect example of a double-sided system that allows simultaneous alignment of transmitters and receivers – as well as other outstanding alignment solutions for the photonics industry. To arrange a meeting to discuss your alignment and positioning challenges in detail, and see how PI can help you improve production yield, contact Ed Williams at
