Title (EN) OPTICAL DEVICE WITH CANTILEVERED FIBER ARRAY AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF OPTIQUE COMPORTANT UN RESEAU DE FIBRES EN PORTE-A-FAUX ET PROCEDE
Abstract:
(EN) A fiber alignment device comprises a base having at least one alignment groove, a stripped portion of an optical fiber positioned in the at least one alignment groove, where a terminal end of the fiber extends beyond at least one of an end face of the base, and an end face of a cover bonded to the base to secure the optical fiber between the base and the cover, where an end face of the cover and the end face of the base are substantially non- parallel.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif d'alignement de fibres qui comprend une base comportant au moins une rainure d'alignement, une partie dénudée d'une fibre optique placée dans la ou les rainure(s) d'alignement. L'extrémité terminale de la fibre se déploie au-delà d'une face d'extrémité de la base et/ou d'une enveloppe de la base liée(s) à la base, de manière à fixer la fibre optique entre la base et l'enveloppe. Une face d'extrémité de l'enveloppe et la face d'extrémité de la base sont sensiblement non parallèles.
