Abstract

Continuing a previous analytical and numerical work, an experimental investigation of seven intrinsic properties of the optical coupling between axisymmetric Gaussian beams is presented. In this study, two single-mode fibers are used as the receiver and the emitter and a five-axis nanopositioning system is used to investigate optical coupling properties by moving one fiber relative to the other. Experiments demonstrate the existence of sufficiently accurate hyperbolic, parabolic, and linear trends for the optical coupling phenomenon, which can be useful for developing model-based alignment algorithms.
