A standard infrared light emitting diode (IR LED) generates radiant flux both in orthogonal and parallel direction with respect to the PN junction. 'Nith reference to the figure, assuming an LED die which has been bonded on a supporting substrate, at least one optical fiber can be coupled to each side of the die. For example, fibers or ports 1, 2, 3 are coupled to the sides of die 4. The number of fibers is given by the physical dimension of the die and the fiber.
