Abstract

It has been verified that ball point pen collimators, have an effect on the modal distribution of light traveling through GI-POF. It is reasoned that the spherical lenses act as low pass filters, preventing higher modes of being reaccepted into the system. A possible explanation for this effect could be spherical aberration due the combination spherical lens diameter and beam size. The positive effects on misalignment responsiveness are investigated and discussed.
