Thorlabs' HLD001 TEC stabilized laser mount is designed to integrate our Ø5.6 mm and Ø9 mm laser diodes into our multi-axis flexure platforms as well as provide temperature regulation for the diodes. The TEC element contained in this mount can sink up to 3 A to keep the laser diode at a constant temperature. Temperature stabilization of laser diodes is necessary for applications which require substantial control over a diodes power and wavelength. Thorlabs offers a wide variety of Temperature and Current Controllers suitable for laser diode temperature and current control. The TTC001 T-Cube™ Temperature Controller is often used in applications that utilize the HLD001 mount.
In addition to providing a TEC for temperature stabilization, the HLD001 mount is also designed to assimilate into a flexure platform. The mount features an alignment key that mates with a keyway of a flexure platform; yielding a simple and accurate method to integrate this mount into a flexure assembly. Integration into these multi-axis flexure mounts provides excellent control over a diode's position and alignment with optical systems.
Flexure stage mounts can be fixed in position using AMA010(/M) mounting cleats, which are sold below. Each cleat is designed with one edge milled flat, making it possible to insert or remove a flexure stage mount without removing the clamp. Simply loosen the clamp screw and rotate the flat side of the lock-down clamp inward to release the flexure stage mount.

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 groove. Place the accessory into the groove between the cleats, rotate the cleat so that the rounded edge covers the edge of the mount, and lock down the 6-32 (M3) locking screw and washer. The cleats can be rotated without needing to remove the locking screws. See the animation to the right for details. The included screws are 5/16" (8 mm) long and are used with a 3/32" (2.5 mm) hex key.
For mounting multiple components in close proximity, we offer the AMA110 mounting blocks. These mounting blocks feature a line of nylon-tipped setscrews to secure components, and allow for easy repositioning and very close mounting. The blocks are secured via two holes and are supplied with either 6-32 or M3 cap screws.
The AMA111 Narrow Device Mounting Clamps offer an alternative solution when devices need to be mounted close together. They are secured using an M3.5 or M3 washer and a 6-32 or M3 cap screw, compatible with a 7/64" or 2.5 mm hex key, respectively.
