Abstract : A connector is described for providing input-output couplings to optical transmission lines without interrupting the optical radiation flow. A transparent 45 degree prism is inserted between scrambling rods connected between ends of the transmission line. Part of the surface of the prism has mirror coatings. Auxiliary rods having input and output couplings are then bonded at right angles to the prism to provide the coupling.
