  • Publication number: 20190207358
    Abstract: The present embodiment relates to an optical amplifier and the like having a structure for enabling efficient use of pumping light while avoiding complication of a device structure. In such an optical amplifier, since pumping light from a pumping light source is supplied to each core of an amplification MCF, a coupling MCF in which adjacent cores form a coupled core is arranged between the amplification MCF and the pumping light source. The pumping light source is optically connected to a specific core of the coupling MCF, and pumping light is coupled from the specific core to remaining cores except the specific core in the coupling MCF before pumping light is supplied to each core of the amplification MCF. This enables coupling of pumping light between optically connected cores between the amplification MCF and the coupling MCF.

  • Patent number: 10290803
    Abstract: A wedge-shaped contact region can be employed to provide electrical contacts to multiple electrically conductive layers in a three-dimensional device structure. A cavity including a generally wedge-shaped region and a primary region is formed in a dielectric matrix layer over a support structure. An alternating stack of insulating layers and electrically conductive layers is formed by a series of conformal deposition processes in the cavity and over the dielectric matrix layer. The alternating stack can be planarized employing the top surface of the dielectric matrix layer as a stopping layer. A tip portion of each electrically conductive layer within remaining portions of the alternating stack is laterally offset from the tip of the generally wedge-shaped region by a respective lateral offset distance along a lateral protrusion direction. Contact via structures can be formed on the tip portions of the electrically conductive layers to provide electrical contact.
