Paper Abstract

An analysis computer program has been designed and written that predicts laser port scatter from the scatter characteristics of each of the port components. First, the scatter data sets from the components are modeled with curve fitting routines. This model is entered into a library for later analysis in predicting port scatter. Ray tracing techniques are utilized along with the component models to predict the angle scatter of the laser port. The resulting predictions are compared to measurements of a fabricated laser port.
