Paper Abstract

In this paper the characteristics of asymmetric, singlemode/multi-mode couplers are presented. The devices are fabricated by fusing a singlemode fiber to a multimode fiber using the fused biconical taper technique. The features of these asymmetric couplers are compared to those predicted by a simple model that is based on the modal capacities of the two fibers.
