David W Sherrer, James C Hurst Jr: Fiber array with wick-stop trench for improved fiber positioning. Haleos, D Steinberg, Martin Meder, March 26, 2002: US06363201 (10 worldwide citation)

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 ...
