Paper Abstract

A ray tracing model has been developed to optimize the design of a low cost polymer molded fiber optic coupling device for data communication applications. Important features of the model are (1) power tracking of each ray through each interface, (2) multi-dimensional optimization algorithms, (3) inclusion of large-angle rays, and (4) graphical ray path representation. Measured butt coupling of an LED to a 62.5 micrometer core multimode fiber was used for verification of the model. The fiber optic coupling device was then designed and good agreement between calculations and measured values was obtained.
