optional marker structure needed? – take your pick!

  • all calculations were done with Gaussian approximation
  • all MFD are specified at 1/e² intensity level
  • MFDs correspond to UHNA4 and SMF28 fiber (except for smallest MFD)
  • WD is measured from apex of lens to waist
  • measured coupling efficiency is pending, estimated coupling is 0.5 dB for large MFD,
    1 dB for smallest MFD, TIR surface has 0.1-0.3 dB penalty
