Paper Abstract

We have designed an input coupler to couple light into the core of a single mode optical fibers without severing the fiber. This design uses two coupling steps. The light is first diffracted into a planar waveguide constructed on the surface of the fiber using diffraction gratings. The light in the planar waveguide is then coupled to the core of the optical fiber through directional mode coupling.
