All-fiber fused-type mode selective coupler with high performance and free of pre-tapering


In this paper we propose and demonstrate a novel all-fiber fused-type mode selective coupler (MSC) that capable of converting LP01 mode to LP11 mode with high efficiency and purity. Unlike other coupler fabrication techniques for which single mode fiber (or few mode fiber) must be pre-tapered, the advantage of our proposed coupler is that pre-tapering is not required. Two different fibers of the MSC have the same diameter. We achieve LP11 mode with a high modal purity of > 90% and a coupling efficiency of >20%, with a low insertion loss of about 0.3 dB at the wavelength of 1064 nm.
