Paper Abstract

In this paper we present the fabrication of optical mode field adaptors for fiber optical communications devices in combination with a new method for spot size measurement for single mode optical components. At the end of standard single mode fibers we have manufactured reproducible mode field transformers with diameters from 5 μm to 90 μm. Additionally, we present a new planar optical field characterization method. BPM simulations are performed to predict the spot sizes at different fiber end diameters. Based on the measurement of a singlemode fiber in accordance with ITU Recommendation G.652 the efficiency is demonstrated and discussed.
