CEN-CENELEC draft CWA “Lens-based adaptor system for coupling fibre optic to laser sources” (MIRACLE)


This CEN-CENELEC Workshop aims to share the findings on ‘Lens-based adaptor system for coupling fibre optic to laser sources’ resulted from a European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation project.

The Workshop puts forward the ‘Adaptor-based coupling system’ as a solution for coupling a mid-infrared (MIR) laser to an optical fiber. This device can provide attractive advantages over the commonly used solutions (e.g. using parabolic mirrors). The proposed solution provides more stability to vibration, while it is cheaper, and more user-friendly. 


As this device can have several different industrial applications, the CEN-CENELEC Workshop aims to share this knowledge with the European and worldwide industry.


The workshop intends to elaborate a CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement (CWA) to start standardization of a lens-based coupling adaptor system for fibre optic, intended for coupling fibres to mid-infrared laser sources.


The WS secretariat is held by the Spanish Standardization Body, UNE.

The kick-off meeting was held virtually on 8 September 2021.


public commenting is organised for a period of 30 days on the draft CWA, closing on 2021-12-31 (24:00 CET). Comments can be submitted to the Workshop Secretariat Mr. Fernando Utrilla Ortega futrilla@une.org using the commenting form:
