Abstract

A comparison of numerical analyses with experimental measurements suggests that both the ray-tracing and the Gaussian beam-propagation models overestimate the misalignment tolerances for on-axis beams and fail to predict the large longitudinal focal shift that occurs for off-axis beams propagating in free-space optical interconnects.
