    Reverse-Tapering Approach Links Structurally Dissimilar Optical Fibers

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A team of researchers from Fudan University has achieved robust mode matching between structurally dissimilar optical fibers, using a “reverse-tapering” approach to deliver ultralow-loss and high-strength fusion splices between standard single-mode fibers (SMFs) and ultralarge mode-area photonic crystal fibers (ULMA-PCFs). The method bypassed the need for external bridging fibers, or components, to achieve an outcome that physically brings together essential optics and photonics building blocks (optical fibers).

    The collaborative team includes researchers from City University of Hong Kong and Université de Limoges in France.
