Paper Abstract

We developed an optical fiber collimator, which means one of the key optical systems for optical components and devices with ultra compactness and cost effectiveness. The beam waist diameter of 250 μm through the optical components and devices might be recommended, taking consideration of space between two pair of optical fiber collimators and compactness without any excess insertion losses. We designed and fabricated an aspherical collimating lens with coupling loss of less than 0.2 dB with a single-mode optical fiber. Several innovative optical components and devices based on this common platform have been proposed.
