Abstract

We developed a fused fiber coupler (FFC) capable of multiplexing wavelengths in the range of 795 nm and 2 μm. A simple 2D simulation model to calculate the pretaper length for matching the propagation constants in the coupling region was established. Based on the numerical data, we fabricated an asymmetric FFC consisting of two different fibers with single-mode guidance for the respective wavelength, achieving a transmission of 90% in the signal fiber for both wavelengths. In order to demonstrate the application, we integrated the FFC into a core pumped thulium-doped fiber amplifier.
