Paper Abstract

The fused taper polarization maintaining optical fiber couplers have been fabricated with Bow- Tie fiber. The principal axis of Bow-Tie fiber are accurately aligned using laser back scattering method. The extinction ratios are more than 15 dB, the insertion loss is less than 0.5 dB. The splitting ratios are about 1:1 for Y polarized input light and 10:1 for X polarized input light at 1.3 micrometers .
