Abstract:

Investigation into the design and fabrication of high dispersion optical fiber is presented. Once fabricated, this high dispersion fiber could be used in signal processing and communications systems. A novel optical switch that is fabricated using highly over-coupled couplers HOCC is also presented. By changing the length of the fused taper section of 2 x 2 coupled fiber, the ratio of the power of the two outputs will change. This device can also be used for strain measurement as well as for modulation. MM
