Paper Abstract

In this paper the theory of the prism coupler is reviewed with regard to the variations found when it is used for the measurement of waveguide attenuation. These variations are caused by a change in the coupling efficiency of the prism coupler which is shown to be due to variations in the prism waveguide spacing and the area of the coupling spot through which coupling occurs. Results are presented for the analysis of attenuation data which enables this technique to be used for the reliable measurement of integrated optical waveguide attenuation.
