  • Patent number: 10451520
    Abstract: Provided is an optical probe that includes an optical waveguide having a core layer and a cladding layer formed so as to cover the core layer, and a support member that supports an end portion of the optical waveguide. In the core layer, an optical waveguide core and a diffraction grating are provided. The diffraction grating is provided at an end of the optical waveguide core, has an input/output surface through which light is output to the outside or input from the outside, and converts the optical axis direction in a range between a light propagation direction in which light is propagated through the optical waveguide core and the input/output direction of light to/from the input/output surface. The support member supports the diffraction grating in such a manner that the input/output surface faces toward a predetermined direction.
