Abstract

We experimentally investigate an optimum scheme of coupling a collimated light from a Ti:sapphire laser source into a standard single-mode fiber (SMF). By adjusting the effective numerical aperture (NA) of coupling lens and eliminating the chromatic aberration, a coupling efficiency of around 70% is finally obtained. This result is close to the maximum value predicted by theoretical simulation. It is well demonstrated that high coupling efficiency between Ti:sapphire laser and SMF can also be obtained by optimizing certain parameters of a coupling lens, without employing any special optical components, or the specific fiber with complex structure.
