Abstract
A collective micro-optics is developed for coupling laser diode arrays to single-mode-fiber ribbons. The arrangement consists of graded-index multimode fiber ribbons and coreless silica fiber ribbons of calibrated lengths that are spliced and cleaved collectively. Coupling losses of 1.07±0.11 dB with a working distance of 30.4± 1.2 xm are achieved. A theoretical model that predicts the coupling efficiency as a function of the lengths of the sections is also established.
