Paper Abstract

Assemblies of single-mode fibre components have been manufactured on single lengths of fibre, thus avoiding problems associated with splices such as connection losses and unwanted back reflections. Components based on the fused and polished fibre technologies have been networked into specialised assemblies for sensor (particularly interferometric) signal processing and telecommunications systems. Examples are given of practical assemblies and limits on our ability to manufacture are discussed.
