Abstract

A new assembly method is described for easy construction of optical modules consisting of guide frames, spacer frames, and a housing frame. This method is used to assemble a two-dimensional optical-fiber collimator and a digital discrete correlator, which are fundamental parts of free-space optical computing systems. We show that a multistage optical system can be constructed simply by stacking of several optical functional blocks. Moreover, these compact modules do not need a conventional optical bench, they are compact, and assembly time is reduced. We demonstrated by experiment that the accuracy of optical modules assembled with this method is within the specifications of the optical system.
