Integrated photonic building blocks for next-generation astronomical instrumentation II: the multimode to single mode transition

Spaleniak, Izabela; Jovanovic, Nemanja; Gross, Simon; Ireland, Michael; Lawrence, Jon S; Withford, Michael J


There are numerous advantages to exploiting diffraction-limited instrumentation at astronomical observatories, which include smaller footprints, less mechanical and thermal instabilities and high levels of performance. To realize such instrumentation it is imperative to convert the atmospheric seeing-limited signal that is captured by the telescope into a diffraction-limited signal. This process can be achieved photonically by using a mode reformatting device known as a photonic lantern that...[Show more]
