An optical coupler may include a fiber optic structure that has a portion of an outer surface that extends in a longitudinal direction of the fiber optic structure. The longitudinal outer surface portion may be optically coupled with a waveguide core of an optical integrated circuit. The fiber optic structure may also include a second outer surface that extends transverse to the longitudinal direction of the fiber optic structure. The fiber optic structure may also include a third outer surface portion that is butt coupled to an end of an optical fiber to optically couple the third outer surface portion with the optical fiber.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
