Paper Abstract

In this paper the results of fused biconical-taper (FBT) couplers fabricated with dispersion-shifted fibers are presented. Couplers fabricated by the FBT process possess inherent design advantages of low loss, low cost, and environmental and temperature stability. With the increasing use of dispersion-shifted fiber in long, repeaterless transmission systems, couplers using these fibers are required. The optical and environmental performance of couplers made from four different dispersion-modified fiber profiles is examined.
