  • Publication number: 20210294040
    Abstract: An optical functional device includes a package case accommodating an optical functional element, an input optical fiber, and an output optical fiber. The optical functional device includes a first reflecting surface that reflects input light output from the input optical fiber to an optical path of output light, a second reflecting surface that reflects the input light to the optical functional element, and a third reflecting surface that reflects the output light in a direction in which the output light becomes further away from an optical axis of the input optical fiber. An optical axis of a leaked light beam transmitted through the second reflecting surface after being reflected by the first reflecting surface or an extension line of the optical axis in an optical propagation medium does not include a portion that is aligned with an optical axis of the output light reflected by the third reflecting surface.
