Paper Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate that a 3×3 port fused fiber grating coupler can be implemented by combining the technique of fabricating fused-fiber couplers as well as that of writing fiber Bragg gratings for application in all-fiber optical filters. A Bragg grating with a reflectivity of 65% is written into the coupling region of a 3×3 fiber coupler with the coupling ratios of 60, 24, and 16%, respectively, for three different output ports. This device can be applied in optical multi/demultiplexing and add/drop filters or in special optical filters.
