Abstract : A single-mode optical fiber to a single-mode optical channel waveguide end-fire coupler. A single fiber held within a capillary tube and positioned by a micropositioner is adjusted for greatest light output and then secured by an epoxy to one end of a channel waveguide. The two elements are then secured in place in a slot in the capillary tube which prevents rotation of the waveguide relative to the single fiber. (Author)
