Paper Abstract

Single-mode optical couplers are critical elements in fiber optic sensor systems and communication networks which use single-mode techniques. In 1980 ITT Electro-Optical Prod-ucts Division (EOPD) developed single-mode 2 x 2 fused biconical taper couplers using con-ventional fabrication techniques with a fiber designed especially for the couplers. This paper reports recent efforts, sponsored by a Naval Research Laboratory contract, which have further developed the coupler.
