Disclosed is a method that consists of an index matched region of free space in which a fiber facet is immersed. The disclosed method suppresses the coupling of ghost reflections generated on the free space launch or by the extraction of light from a fiber. Benefits include a simplified way to frustrate mode coupling efficiency to arbitrary values.
