Abstract

Single-mode fiber couplers produced as fused biconical-taper structures are reported on. The devices exhibit low loss (0.5 dB), arbitrary branching ratio, polarization independence, and broadband operation in wavelength.

Ratio of power (R = power in primary fiber/power in secondary fiber) as a function of the wavelength of the light. The wavelengths as shown correspond to three oscillations of an Ar-ion laser, a He–Ne laser, and an oscillation tuned across the gain band of a rhodamine 6G dye laser.
