Abstract
We review fundamental waveguide optics at a fiber joint between dissimilar specialty fibers and its diffusion characteristics when the joint experiences thermal treatment. We then describe optical coupling techniques including thermal diffusion and fiber tapering in order to achieve minimum transmission loss through the fiber joint. We discuss the optical coupling property change due to diffusion and the effect of fiber taper ratio and taper length with application examples.
