Paper Abstract

In single-mode systems and fiber sensors a single-mode, four-port, directional coupler is often required to transfer light between two fibers. The requirements for the coupler are low loss, a stable splitting ratio and, in some cases, it should maintain a given state of polarization. In this paper the analysis and behavior of single-mode fiber couplers made by the fused-taper technique are reviewed.
