I designed this telescope to couple the 1064 NPRO into the PM980 fiber, using lenses from the Thorlabs LSB04-C kit.
The collimator is a CFC-2X-C, which has a variable focus length (2.0, 4.6, 7.5, and 11.0 mm) which gives corresponding angles of divergence of 0.298, 0.130, 0.79, and 0.054 degrees by the formula theta = (180*MFD) / (pi*f).
Then, using these values I calculated the spot size of a beam collimated by the CFC-2X-C, using f = w / tan(theta) where w is the spot size. This gave a value of 10.4 um.
I used this value (10.4 um) as a target waist for the telescope system, with the NPRO waist as a seed, at the origin.
It consists of two lenses, one located at Z = 77cm f = 50cm, and the second located at Z = 85.88 cm f = 2.54cm, which yields a waist of 13um at Z = 88.32cm, (which is where the collimator would go) for an overlap of .974.
Note that the telescope is so far "downrange" from the NPRO waist because it's a virtual waist, and the NPRO itself is located at about Z = 73cm.
