Tapered Mode Multiplexers Based on Standard Single-Mode Fibre

S Yerolatsitis1, T A Birks1, Physics, University of Bath, UK

We report mode multiplexers with single-mode inputs directly compatible with standard telecoms fibres . They are made by fusing and tapering three such fibres in a fluorine-doped silica capillary. The fused fibres act as the core of a multimode fibre, in which three individual modes could be separately excited The loss is 0 6-0 7 Db.
