Simplex Method Applied in The Fiber-Optic Alignment Automation
The purpose of this study is to establish a automation technology, through using Nelder-Mead Simplex method and
system self-assembly system for fiber-optic coupling and alignment. In this study, the Nelder-Mead method is used to carry out
the theoretical calculation, and the Renases single chip is used to control the circuit configuration and the mechanism module.
We utilize the silicon light detector to detect the brightness of the output of the fiber-optic signal, as the theoretical calculation
and output control basis. Then we control the optical fiber to the maximum power of the light source position, to make silicon
photodetector platform move to the target in the shortest time, to achieve rapid alignment of optical fiber coupling.
