Abstract

A method of manufacturing an optical fibre coupler, comprising the steps of providing a first optical fibre and a second optical fibre, at least one of the fibres being a single-mode fibre; reducing the local diameter of a region of each of the first and the second fibres to produce a tapered waist (80) in each fibre; placing the waists (80) of the first and second fibres in contact with each other; and fusing the waists (80) together to form a fused region (70).
