Abstract

A geometric optics model to describe transverse offset splice loss in multimode graded-index fiber, which has been adapted to evaluate misalignment losses at a graded-index rod (GRIN rod) lens-to-lens coupler, is reported. In both cases, the model gives close agreement with experimental measurements. Finally, in contrast with fiber splice losses, invariance of the lens coupler loss with the optical launch and receive conditions is shown.
