Optical Waveguides with Noninteracting Beam-Slope Stabilizers
Date of Original Version
Ray position in slope-controlled waveguides is studied. A linear combination of three consecutive position measurements is used to calculate the slope error of the middle lens. This is the error input to the middle lens positioning system. Independent lens correction results and thus a decoupling of space and time response is achieved. The system is shown to be stable. Overshoot in the transient response due to cross coupling between controllers is eliminated. Performance is compared to that of the position-controlled waveguide. Computer simulations indicate that the system is stable in the presence of statistical parameter variations. Copyright © by 1975 The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.
