Paper Abstract

Wavelength Division Multiplexers (WDM) are used to inject pump light into erbium doped optical fiber amplifiers. Ideally the WDM should couple 100 of the pump light into the amplifier without coupling away any of the signal light while maintaining low insertion loss at both wavelengths. In this paper we describe both 980/1550nm and 1480/1550nm all fiber WDM5 made with the fused biconical taper process.
