Paper Abstract

An optical fiber coupler based on the semi-linear passive phase conjugate mirror is analyzed. The threshold coupling strength is determined from theoretical considerations. An estimate of 50% for the minimum overall coupling efficiency is made assuming there is good mode matching between the incident light and the fiber. The coupler should exhibit a high degree of alignment insensitivity providing for simple construction.
