Abstract

An efficient LP01 to LP11 modal coupler using periodic microbends, spaced by a beat length between the modes, was built and tested. The optical-wavelength dependence of the device is investigated, as are the polarization characteristics and the LP mode approximation. Finally, the loss of the modal coupler was measured as a function of wavelength.
