Paper Abstract

The fused biconical taper process has been the technology of choice for fabricating a variety of passive fiber optic couplers. These couplers exhibit excellent optical and environmental characteristics. Most recently, this process has been used to fabricate tree and star couplers of various configurations: 1x3, 3x3, 1x4, 4x4 and 1x7 for both local loop and sensing applications. In this paper we report the development of broadband 1x3 and 1x4 couplers for applications requiring simultaneous transmission in both the 1300 and 1550 nm wavelength regions. The wavelength response, insertion loss and optical uniformity of these broadband couplers will be discussed. Their environmental performance will also be presented.
