Paper Abstract

Diode laser are often used as light sources for transmitting information through optical fibers. One of its inherent property is the astigmatism, due to this fact an anamorphic system is required to perform couplings between this kind of lasers and fibers. In this work a theoretical study of the propagation of elliptical gaussian beams emitted from the diode laser through anamorphic gradient index lenses is presented, as well as the way of correcting the astigmatism.
