1 September 1995 Laser welding for fiber pigtailing with long-term stability and submicron accuracy
Author Affiliations +
Laser welding as a means for optical packaging, providing long-term stability and submicron precision, has been implemented for fixing single-mode fibers or fiber arrays to integrated optical waveguides of GaAs and InP optoelectronic chips. Fixing accuracies better than 0.5 μm are achieved by applying a new method of corrective welding. Devices such as high-power LEDs featuring low spectral modulation, 980-nm laser diodes, integrated reflective Mach-Zehnder modulators (GaAs), and 1 x 2 InP switches have been packaged and used in system test beds.
