David W Sherrer, James C Hurst: Fiber array with wick-stop trench for improved fiber positioning. Dan Steinberg, ACT MicroDevices, January 10, 2002: US20020003933-A1

A V-groove chip for fiber arrays having a wick stop trench. The wick stop trench intersects the V-grooves and is preferably deeper than the V-grooves. The wick stop trench prevents adhesive from moving via capillary action along the entire length of a V-groove. This is very useful for manufacturing ...
