Fabrication of wavelength-flattened tapered couplers using polishing for cladding removal

C.D.Hussey, T.A.Birks

Abstract

Wavelength-flattened fused tapered couplers have been fabricated with low loss using a new technique. The asymmetry between the constituent fibres is induced by the rapid removal of a small amount of the cladding of one of the fibres with a polishing wheel.
