Paper Abstract

The demand for branching devices for use in optical fibre systems is increasing rapidly with the expansion of such systems into the broadband subscriber loop, local area networks and data links. This paper describes a number of all-fibre single mode devices, based on the fused biconic branching coupler design. The paper highlights the versatility of such devices in providing certain functions such as switching and wavelength division multiplexing which are particularly suited for use in broadband systems.
