Wavelength-flattened couplers: performance optimisation by twist-tuning

Birks, T.A. and Hussey, C.D. (1989) Wavelength-flattened couplers: performance optimisation by twist-tuning Electronics Letters, 25, (6), pp. 407-408. (doi:10.1049/el:19890280).

Record type: Article


The twisting of an asymmetric fused tapered single-mode fibre coupler is found to decrease the maximum coupled power, in addition to the usual shift in the wavelength response. This effect can be used to optimise a wavelength-flattened coupler's performance during or after coupler elongation.
