Expanded-beam fiber-optic connectors have been developed for fiber-to-fiber connections, where they can provide relaxed alignment tolerances and reduce effects of contamination.  Expanded-beam connectors for multi-mode fiber have been commercialized, but those for single-mode fiber are still in development. The Module with Separable Single-Mode Expanded-Beam Optical Interface for Edge-Coupled PIC Optics project developed designs and processes for providing a single-mode expanded-beam connector interface on a module housing a photonic integrated circuit (PIC). PIC modules were built and characterized, and performance data will be presented in this webinar.
