Abstract
The mode-field expander (MFE) is a microstructured optical fiber (MOF) based device that enlarges the modal field distribution and can couple light from large mode area (LMA) fibers into small core fibers or vice-versa and other optical waveguides. Using our earlier developed analytical field model, we studied the mode-field expansion in MOFs having triangular lattice, and low-loss splicing of MOFs to standard single-mode fibers (SMFs), based on the controlled all airhole collapse method, which leads to an optimum mode-field match at the joint interface of the MOF-SMF. Comparisons with available experimental and simulation results have also been included.
