Paper Abstract

An all-fiber fused WDM for use with erbium doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) is reported. Besides operating on the principle wavelengths of 1480 nm and 1550 nm, it has an additional feature of operating at 1310 nm. This 1310/1480/1550 wavelength division multiplexer (WDM) finds its use with a hybrid optical-electrical amplification system. The three window operation in this device is made possible by using its quasi-sinusoidal coupling ratio (CR) dependence on wavelength. In this paper, we demonstrate a WDM which shows > 15 dB isolation, < 0.5 dB excess loss, and polarization sensitivity of < 1.2% at all the three wavelengths of interest.
