Paper Abstract

This paper details the performance of a new high specification compact broadband 1 X 6 fused fiber coupler. Also reported is confidence testing carried out on the 1 X 6 couplers against the Bellcore document `Generic requirements for fiber-optic branching components' and testing of 1 X 2/2 X 2 couplers against the Bellcore long term reliability document, especially the temperature-humidity cycling test, considered to be the most testing environment for couplers.
