Paper Abstract

The construction and evaluation of single-mode optical fibre tunable couplers are described with the emphasis on the polarisation maintaining fibre devices. The couplers operate via an evanescent field coupling mechanism and are produced based on the polishing technique. General characteristics including polarisation property, wavelength tunability and limitations are described. Applications of tunable fibre couplers are discussed.
