Here is the output from D1800125-v5_SN01.

And here's the output of the fiber launcher when I fixed it at 313mm from the camera, attached an iris to the front and slowly reduced the aperture of the iris.

The titles reflect the calculated second moment of the intensity profiles (an estimate of the equivalent Gaussian beam radius). The iris is successful in spatially filtering the central annular mode at first and then the outer annular mode. 

We'll need to determine the optimum diameter to get good transmission spatially without sacrificing too much power.

We tested the output of the fiber launcher D1800125-v3. We were using a 6mm spacer in the SM1 lens tube and 11mm spacer in the SM05 lens tube and the 50 micron core fiber.

The output of the fiber launcher was projected directly onto the CCD. Images of these are attached (coordinates are in pixels where 100 pixels = 1.2mm)

There is a lot of high-spatial frequency light on the output. It looks like there is core and cladding modes in addition to a more uniform background. There was an indication that we could clear up these annular modes with an iris immediately after the fiber launcher but I didn't get any images. We're going to test this next week when we get an SM1 mountable iris.
