Transmit light without divergence
To optimize the optical fiber for this tomographic system, it is important to model the optical fiber lens. In order to avoid the loss of the beam intensity, the beam of light must diverge as little as possible.
Each lens can have a different radius. The model takes into account that a large divergent beam is undesirable because it decreases the energy centered in the beam and can cause overlapping of adjacent transmitted beams at the receivers.
