  • 1x1 Fiber-optic Rotary Joints
  • The 1x1 Fiber-optic Rotary Joint is the basic and the most popular type of rotary joints. It can either transmit the light from the sources to the sample and/or from the sample to a photodetector.

    When fiber-optic patch cord connectors are inserted in the rotary joint receptacles, the fiber tips are at the focal planes of the respective collimating lenses, and the beam is parallel between the lenses. 1x1 Fiber-optic Rotary Joints are typically used with optical fibers with a core diameter of 200 µm and an NA of up to 0.5.
