Paper Abstract

We report the results of an experimental study of optical power losses due to lateral offset of the input aperture of a step-index optical fiber used to scan a point source. Data were taken with hard-clad silica and plastic-clad silica fibers having core diameters ranging from 200 to 1000 µm. These results will be useful in establishing alignment criteria for the optical components used in our laser-based remote thermometry research program.
