Paper Abstract

Plastic fibres are considered suitable for applications in short distance datalinks, local area networks, and automotive applications. Components such as Tcouplers are essential in these applications. This paper describes results obtained fromanovel T-coupler formed by profiling the ends of the 1mm plastic fibres used, this profiling being produced by a simple polishing technique. Excess losses of less than 2.5dB have been obtained.
