Kinematic Flexure Stage Mounts and Accessories
Holds RMS Threaded Microscope Objective or Accessories with the HMA001 Adapter Plate
±3° Angular Range
Flexure Stage Mount with 12.5mm Optical Axis Height
This kinematic flexure mount allows for fine angular control of 1/2" diameter optics mounted on multi-axis flexure stages. A possible application for the HMM001 flexure stage mount would be to use it in the construction of a fiber based interferometer. The fine angular control of a mirror mounted in the HMM001 would allow the laser beam emerging from the fiber to be retro-reflected back into the fiber.
Externally threaded RMS threaded components can be mounted on the HMM001 by attaching the HMA001 adapter plate. With the HMA001 adapter plate, the kinematic flexure mount is ideal for use as a fiber coupling objective mount when fine angular control of the coupling objective is needed to maximize coupling efficiency.
RMS adapter rings make it possible to mount components with alternative thread types (see below).
The ASM003 mirror mount has a Ø6.0 mm (Ø0.24") clear aperture, is designed to accept Ø7.0 mm (Ø0.28") optics up to 2.5 mm (0.10") thick, and comes with one Ø7.0 mm silver-coated mirror.
The AMA010(/M) Cleats have a flat milled along one side. To lock an accessory along the center alignment groove, rotate the cleat so that the flat is facing the accessory, and secure the accessory between two cleats. The cleats can be rotated without needing to remove the locking screws. They are sold in packs of 15, together with 6-32 UNC (M3) locking screws and washers.
