Paper Abstract

There is a growing demand for single fiber bidirectional communication systems both in the subscriber loop in the telephony industry and various sensor applications. In such configurations, 1 X2 couplers/ wavelength division multiplexers have become an integral part of such system designs. The single fiber leg of the coupler is normally terminated with a fiber optic connector to provide an interface with the transmission line. In many of these applications there is a requirement for a size reduction in the system and system components. To satisfy this requirement the integration of fused fiber optic couplers or wavelength division multiplexers with fiber optic connectors into a single compact unit has been developed. In addition to the size reduction, elimination of one of the free fiber outputs simplifies system design and reduces the fiber storage requirements.
