Paper Abstract

High power diode lasers are anisotropic light emitters with high aperture angles in the plane perpendicular to the semiconductor plane. The collimation of this radiation with different cylindrical collimator types is discussed. Special attention is paid to the usable numerical aperture, the offense against Abbe's sine condition and production constraints.
