This study elucidates the dynamic
characteristics of an optical fiber coupler via the
differential quadrature simulations. A novel modeling scheme is
suitable for developing an optical fiber coupler application.
Exactly how the locations of bonding points, string tension,
and spring stiffness of the rubber pad affect the dynamic
behavior of the optical fiber coupler is investigated.
