Paper Abstract

This manuscript summarizes the work presented at the meeting. A more complete paper has already been submitted to a journal. In an effort to adapt the analysis of coupling lenses to the use of optical design software, we demonstrate that the coupling efficiency of a system can be related to an apodized and normalized point spread function. This approach allows the evaluation, optimization and tolerancing of systems which contain a fair amount of aberration. Comparison of theoretical predictions with experimental results shows good agreement
