We present an optical setup capable of transforming a paraxial Gaussian-beam into a spherical linear dipole wave. This is accomplished by focusing a radially polarized beam with a parabolic mirror covering 94% of the solid angle relevant for a linear dipole. The mode is interfaced to an ion at the focus of the parabolic mirror, providing an ideal probe for the created mode. By reducing our focusing geometry to half solid-angle we are able to monitor the upper-level population of the driven transition, measuring the light scattered by the ion into the complementary solid angle part. Varying the incident power we determine the coupling efficiency to the linear dipole to be 27%. Our setup demonstrates the highest efficiency for coupling between light and a single emitter in free space reported so far.
