Paper Abstract

Presented is a macro running in CODE V® that automatically calculates the return loss from all surfaces in a lens system using either a Gaussian beam approach or a ray-based Gaussian apodization method. Results are compared between the two methods and with output from a diffraction-based beam propagator for a couple of simple cases. A method for optimizing return loss and coupling efficiency simultaneously based upon a simplex optimizer is presented.
