Method For Laser Source Definition in ZEMAX™
The abstract of the article follows:
By default, optical systems are usually designed for single mode lasers. Nonetheless, many industrial lasers have M2 in the range from 3 to about 100 and are often called “multi-mode” or “partially coherent” lasers. Among those laser sources are multi-mode fiber lasers, multi-mode fiber-coupled diode lasers, excimers, multi-mode solid-state lasers, and VCSEL arrays. While they have some disadvantages in terms of focus-ability, higher M2 lasers offer higher power than single mode lasers and require lower precision of optical elements in the system.
