Dear All, I would like to use a cylinder microlens for fast-axis collimation of a laser diode beam. The length of the lens is 1.06 mm and its diameter is 0.5 mm. its working distance is 0.06 mm. How to mount the microlens in the front of the laser facet? I want to use a needle with the lens attached to its end. Any better ideas please? thank you PS: I am posting this question in the Physics forum, because physicist frequently use lenses and microlenses.
