  • Publication number: 20200292756
    Abstract: Arrays of fiber pigtails can be used to project and receive light. Unfortunately, most fiber pigtail arrays are not aligned well enough for coherently combining different optical beams. This imprecision stems in part from misalignment between the optical fiber and the endcap spliced to the end of the optical fiber. The endcap is often polished, curved, or patterned, causing the light emitted by the endcapped fiber to refract or diffract as it exits the endcap. This refraction or diffraction shifts the apparent position of the beam waist from its actual position. Measuring this virtual beam waist position before and after splicing the endcap to the fiber increases the absolute precision with which the fiber is aligned to the endcap. This increase in absolute precision reduces the deviation in virtual beam waist position among endcapped fibers, making it easier to produce arrays of endcapped fibers aligned precisely enough for coherent beam combining.

  • Publication number: 20200286102
    Abstract: A child application executed by a computing device receives user information from and provides user data to an end user via a user interface implemented by the computing device. A host application executed by the computing device is unable to obtain the user information and the user data from the user interface. The host application obtains the user information and the user data from the child application only via a connection line connecting the child and host applications. The host application receives an identification that uniquely identifies the end user to a host application server and provides the identification to the child application. The child application sends the identification to a child application server. The child application server creates a customer relationship management (“CRM”) profile for the end user, associates the identification with the CRM profile, and associates activities of the end user with the CRM profile.
