Paper Abstract

Photocor (TM) couplers are manufactured using ion-exchange in glass. This paper reports on the extension of this CORNING coupler product line to include high performance multimode stars and ruggedised tree and star couplers for harsh environments. In addition, development work on pigtailed single-mode couplers is presented. Achromatic, polarization insensitive 1 X 2 couplers show 0.8-0.9 dB excess loss at 1310 nm. Insertion loss variations during -40°C/+85°C thermal cycling of packaged devices are less than ± 0.1 dB. The coupler reliability is illustrated with qualification test results.
