Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) A multi-core fiber (MCF) that has plurality of cores in one fiber is one of the promising candidates to cope with the exponentially increasing transmission capacity. A fan-in/fan-out (FI/FO) which allows each core of MCF to be connected to individual single core fibers (SCFs) is indispensable in achieving practical use. Many kinds of FI/FOs have been reported so far. One of the FI/FOs we have developed is Lens integrated FI/FO, where the optical system and the structure was reported before [8,9]. However, the return loss of it was less than 30 dB on some port. In this report, the optical design is changed and the return loss more than 47 dB across all ports is achieved.
