Abstract

An optical directional coupler in which a TeO//2 acoustooptical deflector (AOD) is employed has been designed and developed for use in an optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR). A low round-trip insertion loss of 4. 6 dB and low crosstalk of below minus 48 dB were attained for the fabricated coupler. Signals of large amplitude, such as Fresnel reflection, could be suppressed to less than minus 33 dB by switching of the optical directional coupler. Amplitude fluctuation of the back-scattered signal due to polarization fluctuation in single-mode fibers is reduced to a negligible extent.
