Abstract
In this work, we present results of a simple technique to fabricate single mode fused fiber couplers. Couplers are fabricated in small mobile ceramic oven heated by gas flame to obtain a temperature uniformity, and a constant tension is maintained during fusion process to elongate the optical fibers. The fibers are tapered in order to close the cores and propitiate the evanescent field coupling. Optical properties of the resulting couplers, with different output power ratio, are analyzed.
