Paper Abstract

A newly developed manufacturing technique for single mode fiber couplers relying upon improved microelectronics technologies of silicon is presented. The high accuracy needed for such couplers is obtained from curved V-grooves precisely etched on a silicon wafer, the flatness of which has been enhanced. Use of conventional polishing technique is then made. The proposed technique allows reliable production with a good reproductibility from batch to batch. Experimental results are presented as well as their capability of wave-length multiplexing and their polarization behavior.
