Paper Abstract

Fused, polarisation maintaining, evanescent-wave couplers have been fabricated from D-fibre. Coupling is controlled by a core diffusion technique which we call "diffusion tuning". Losses lower than 0.1 di! and polarisation extinction ratios as high as 30.6 dB have been observed. The couplers are highly stable, intrinsically robust and have the potential of being made very small in size.
