Abstract

When light is coupled into or out of an optical fiber through a normally cut end face, reflection may set up disturbing standing waves. They can be avoided by a slight tilt (≃ 12°) of the end face of the fiber and a corresponding inclination of the fiber axis. Residual reflections of −58 to −68 dB are obtained.
