Paper Abstract

Details of the development of asymmetric plastic fiber couplers and large port number star couplers are presented. Both coupler types have been fabricated with relatively high performance at a low cost. These devices are manufactured by direct bonding of the plastic optical fibers while heating. Results are given for 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4 asymmetric couplers utilizing 250μm, 500μm, 750μm and 1000μm diameter fibers and for 16x16, 32x32 and 64x64 star couplers using 250μm diameter fiber.
