  9. White Paper: Properties & Reliability Of Improved Large Acceptance Optical Fibers
    Laser based applications in micro-packaging, microelectronics, and optoelectronic manufacturing benefit from the use of optical fibers coupled to the laser sources. Both economical and technical benefits are possible. Efficient coupling is key to accepting laser beam energy into the fibers for many cases. In some cases the ability to spread the output may be the key factor. The availability of optical fibers having low optical losses and high numerical apertures provide the opportunity to use smaller dimensioned fibers while still maintaining highly efficient coupling.
