Abstract

This paper discusses the possibilities of laser technology in operations involving the assembly of optical elements, using heat-shrink materials. It is shown that, by choosing the radiation parameters, spatial localization of the heating that is adequate for shaping can be achieved in a polymeric material but still does not result in undesirable heating of the item being assembled. A process is described that uses the proposed method to assemble an electro-optic modulator based on a DKDP crystal.
