Paper Abstract

Reports the microfabricated nickel clamps for packaging of optical fibers in photonics devices. When the fiber is inserted into the silicon V groove, the microfricated clamps fix it in the V groove. Compared with the traditional silicon V grooves, this approach only involves one additional sputtering, photolithography, and electroplating process. Two single-mode optical fibers were fixed into the silicon V groove by the nickel clamp; the measured insertion loss is lower than 0.1 dB.
