Title: System for generating a wavelength stabilized output from a superluminescent diode

Abstract: A system is described which generates a wavelength stabilized output from a superluminescent diode. The system may be implemented whereby a superluminescent diode injects an optical signal into a conically tapered optical fiber fused to an optical fiber polarization independent wavelength division multiplexing (PINC WDM) coupler. The PINC WDM coupler transforms the optical signal into an optical signal which is wavelength stabilized with respect to temperature.
