Abstract : Document describes a bi-directional fibre-optic coupler providing about 70 dB to about 100 dB isolation from near end transmitter radiation in a system that transmits signals in opposite directions over a single fibre and thereby provides a low-loss coupler having operational characteristics to handle reception and transmission with sufficiently low value of crosstalk.
