Paper Abstract

A simple technique for fabricating single mode star couplers using ion-exchanged glass guides is proposed and demonstrated. Calculations indicate the possibility of achieving an excess loss of 2dB and a uniformity of 3dB for a lx32 star coupler. Furthermore the technique can be scaled to increase the number of ports without changing uniformity or excess loss.
