Abstract

We present a numerical wave optical model to describe the complex behavior of coaxial and decentered microlens-array-based telescopes illuminated by an incoherent angular spectrum of plane waves. With the use of this model we have been able to observe major performance differences between Galilean and Keplerian setups, which to our knowledge were not described before. The results of the simulations are compared with experimental results; the images of multimode fiber end faces are characterized with respect to transfer efficiency and intensity distribution. The results are also explained by use of modified existing analytical models.
