Paper Abstract

Slantly polished fibers and waveguides coupling as a means for achieving both low optical power reflection and efficient power transmission is proposed. Return losses exceeding -70 dB can be obtained in fiber-to-Lithium Niobate waveguides operating at ) = 0.633 jm and ) = 1.3 pm by polishing the fiber at an angle of 6°. A phase matching condition between the propagation constants ,8 and the polishing angles in the fiber and the waveguide: fl(fiber)sincx(fiber) = fl(waveguide)sina(waveguide) must be fulifiled in order to enable efficient power coupling. Polishing angle tolerances of approximately lO are allowed for a maximum of 1 dB decrease in the coupling efficiency.
