Abstract

We analyze the evolution of beam quality when propagating through a parabolic index (PI) fiber. The deterioration in beam quality is expressed in terms of the fiber parameters, and a methodology for minimizing the deterioration is presented. The fiber optimization procedure is evaluated numerically for an application where the PI fiber is used to deliver the signal produced by a tapered fiber-bundle beam combiner. It was demonstrated that delivery with no beam quality deterioration can be achieved with proper fiber design.
