Abstract

On the basis of the overlap integral method, an approximate analytical model is derived to estimate the coupled optical power between axisymmetric Gaussian beams when transverse, axial, and angular misalignments simultaneously exist in three dimensions. Seven optical properties are derived from a detailed analysis of the model. Because the model is an approximate analytical solution to the overlap integral method, the existence of each property is also investigated by a numerical solution. Results show that all seven properties are intrinsic to the optical coupling phenomenon between Gaussian beams. Because numerous single-mode device-to-fiber coupling systems can be well described by use of Gaussian beams, the seven properties provide a solid basis to develop model-based algorithms for single-mode device-to-fiber alignment automation.
