Abstract

Several novel and simple launching (and collection) mounts for use in the assessment of single-mode and multi-mode glass-fibre waveguides are described. The transmission efficiency for Gaussian beams of 96% is limited only by Fresnel reflection loss at the entry face. Techniques for preparing the end of the fibre are outlined, a list of some suitable index-matching liquids and their properties is provided and two parameters, namely a smoothing factor S and a ray deviation theta, are proposed for assessing the optical quality of the launching system.
