Title: OPTICAL COUPLING ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
An optical system includes a base with a fiber retention and alignment section having at least one alignment member. An optical coupling section of the base has an optical coupling block and includes at least one optical coupling element with an ellipsoidal reflecting surface defining first and second focal points. First and second focal surface are generally aligned with the first and second focal points, respectively. An optical path extends through each optical coupling element and is aligned with one of the alignment members. An optical fiber is positioned within each alignment member adjacent a first focal surface and an optical component is optically aligned with each optical fiber and positioned adjacent one of the second focal surfaces.
