Abstract
We have developed a multi-beam light source using a passive device that narrows the optical spot pitch in a multi-beam optical head. It consists of an optical-fiber input system and an optical waveguide. Using an experimental multi-beam light source, we demonstrated optical output of 12 mW with a propagation efficiency of 30% and wave-front aberration of less than (lambda) /20. Although the mode type of the waveguide was multi-mode, we could focus the beam at the optical spot within the diffraction limit.
