Abstract

Array size scaling of passive coherent beam combination is explored theoretically. The Strehl ratio variation with wavelength is simulated in 4-, 9-, 16-, and 25-channel fiber arrays. The average Strehl ratio and phase error are calculated. The Strehl ratio is found to be near 100% for arrays with less than 5 fibers, but decreases significantly for larger arrays. These results are in good agreement with the recent experimental results.
