Abstract
We present experimental results on Microstructured Optical Fibre (MOF) coupling with standard Single Mode Fibre (SMF) using a simple and reliable set-up. An electric-arc splicing system is used to demonstrate its effectiveness in splicing SMF with MOFs. The measurements of the additional loss induced by transverse and longitudinal offsets at connections between SMF and MOF are reported and discussed. The influence of mode size mismatch is emphasized.
