Abstract

We report the formulation of an ABCD matrix for reflection and refraction of Gaussian light beams at the surfaces of the hyperboloid of revolution that separate media of different refractive indices. The analysis includes an arbitrary angle of incidence and is based on matching the optical phase at the interface. Finally, we deduce expressions for spot sizes and wave-front radii and use them to obtain the ABCD matrix. Based on the formulated ABCD matrix for refraction under paraxial approximation, we also report a simple theoretical investigation of the coupling efficiency of a laser diode to a single-mode fiber with a hyperbolic lens formed on its tip.
