Abstract:

This optical access coupler is used to extract a fraction of the light carried by a multimode optical fiber bundle data transmission line and to inject light signals onto the tranmission line in such a way as to distribute the input light nearly uniformly over the fibers of the fiber bundle transmission line. A portion of the light on the transmission line is coupled out while a different portion continues straight through the access coupler.
