Single-mode fused biconical taper fibre coupler

Ragdale, C.M., Payne, D.N., de Fornel, F. and Mears, R.J. (1983) Single-mode fused biconical taper fibre coupler At IEE Colloquium Conference in Optical Fibre Sensors 221, United Kingdom. 26 - 28 Apr 1983.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


In many single-mode optical fibre sensors, in particular those based on fibre interferometers, a single-mode 4-port directional coupler is needed to transfer light from one fibre to another. Although the coupling can be achieved with discrete components, a more stable and robust system with a lower insertion loss can be obtained if a fibre coupler is used
