Paper Abstract

Fused biconical tapered fiber-optic components are very attractive because of their high performance, versatility, low-cost and ease of fabrication. Several new components have been developed using fused tapered and spliced structures, and their modal characteristics were measured. Rotation-splicing has been shown very effective to achieve mode insensitivity at the output ports of such devices.
