Paper Abstract

The coupler surrounding media can drastically change the spectral properties of single-mode fused biconically tapered single-mode coupler. The coupling coefficient can vary from 0% to almost 100% by changing the value of outer refractive index. The application of such behavior can lead to realize fiber switches, refractometers or tunable multiplexers/demultiplexers.
