Fiber array optical systems, the subject of this study, can overcome some of the draw-backs of conventional monolithic large-aperture transmitter/receiver optical systems that are usually heavy, bulky, and expensive. The primary experimental challenges in the development of the adaptive phased-locked fiber-array included precise (Figure 1.1: Diagram of a fiber-based optical transmitter for free-space laser communications and beam projection applications. The laser source delivers optical power to the transmitter. In laser communication applications the laser beam isanbsp;...
