Abstract : An optical connector provides input-output coupling to an optical transmission line without interrupting completely the flow of optical radiation. An optically transparent dielectric block is inserted between portions of a fiber bundle transmission line. The block has one flat side along its length which is bonded to a second material having at least one flat side along its length cooperating with the flat side of the block. The input-output bundles are attached to the second material which has the same index of refraction as the first block.
