Core Alignment of Butt Coupling Between Single-Mode and Multimode Optical Fibers by Monitoring Brillouin Scattering Signal

Abstract

We propose a new method to optimize the core alignment of the butt coupling between a single-mode optical fiber (SMF) and a graded-index multimode optical fiber (GI-MMF) by monitoring the spectrum of Brillouin scattered light. This method is stable, free from costly or elaborate equipments, applicable to the coupling of optical fibers with different core… (More)
