We have developed an easily-assembled optical coupling device that consists of two multifiber array connectors and a single-mode planar waveguide chip whose ends are passively positioned in novel plastic plug components compatible with the multi-fiber array connectors. The assembled 18 splitter devices are connected and disconnected easily and exhibit excellent levels of optical performance.
