Abstract

This paper describes the characteristics of optical couplers with high power laser diodes as sources. The couplers investigated include gradient-index (GRIN) lenses manufactured by Nippon Sheet Glass, a plano–convex lens, a prism, optical fibers manufactured by Ensign-Bickford and Nippon Sheet Glass, and fiber optic stub manufacture by Spec Tran. The characteristics measured included: (1) GRIN lens transmission of up to 97%, fiber transmission of up to 90%, plano–convex lens transmission of up to 92%; (2) intensity distribution contours and profiles of the beam transmitted through GRIN lenses and optical fibers; (3) the beam dimensions of a collimating system; and (4) the divergence of optical fibers of varying lengths. Spectra Diode Laboratory and McDonnell Astronautics Company/Opto Electronics Center manufactured the laser diodes sources that emitted up to 3.6 W.
