Expanded-beam connector design study
Applied Optics, 20, (16), . (doi:10.1364/AO.20.002861).
A theoretical analysis of an expanded-beam connector is presented, and it is shown that considerable scope exists for optimization of the design. A ray-tracing technique is used to quantify the importance of various parameters in determining the insertion loss. The design guidelines are presented in graphical form, and their usefulness is demonstrated in several examples of practical interest.
