Paper Abstract

In this paper we present the fabrication of optical mode field adaptors at the end of single mode and multimode optical fibers, which act as a micro lens, for fiber optical communications devices, capable up to 40Gbit/s data. The mode field adaptors were used to focus the optical output field (1550nm wavelength) of the fiber to receiver and transmitter OEICs. Based on the measurement of a singlemode fiber in accordance with ITU Recommendation G.652 the optical mode fields are measured in a new set-up, which is demonstrated and discussed in comparison to conventional methods. The work was performed in cooperation with the Heinrich-Hertz-Institute in Berlin.
