Paper Abstract

During the past year Gould has developed the means of manufacturing truly fused 1x4 couplers via the fused biconical taper (FBT) process in a reliable and cost effective manner. In this paper various practical aspects of the manufacturing process will be discussed. The optical performance data such as uniformity, insertion loss, polarization sensitivity, and environmental stability data of these components as built in a production environment will also be presented.
