Automatic Waveguide-fiber Alignment Algorithm based on Polynomial Fitting

Yu Zheng, Baibing Li, Ji-an Duan

Abstract

We report on a highly efficient alignment algorithm, which based on coupling model, between an optical fiber and an optical waveguide device. For 1×16 optical waveguide splitter, many repeated experiments can guarantee that the insertion loss of the device channels is less than 13.5 dB, with the maximum uniformity of 0.40 dB.
