Single mode couplers:
Single mode couplers split light from one fiber into two or combine light from two fibers onto one fiber with minimum loss. This feature of single mode couplers, which allows for duplex transmission on single fiber, is highly desirable in fiber optic network maintenance, administration and testing. Single Mode Couplers are available in standard wavelengths of 980nm, 1064nm, 1480nm, 1640nm. Custom wavelengths are available. Fig.1 depicts a typical spectral response of single mode  couplers within 1300nm - 1800nm. 

Tap couplers:
Tap couplers are extremely important in accessing the signal without altering the state of polarization of the signal. FONT's standard, wideband and wavelength flattened tap couplers are available in 1% to 5% coupling ratios with Polarization Dependent Losses (PDL) as low as 0.05dB.

While Single mode couplers are essential to the operation of fiber optic-based telecommunication networks, cable TV and Local Area Networks (LANs), they are also widely used in sensor technology, robotics technology and laboratory test and measurements. FONT's single mode couplers are available in variety of package styles.
