9 December 2004 Advanced fiber coupling technologies for space and astronomical applications
Author Affiliations +
Coupling of optical signal into a single mode waveguide has been a difficult problem for a long time. An advanced fibre coupling device (AFCD) is a high performance fibre coupling system that provide wavefront correction, vibration isolation and alignment. We will discuss two AFCD, one for a ground to space communication link an a second for astronomical interferometric application (DARWIN and VLTI interferometer).
