A launching coupler for hollow fibers consisting of a convex lens and a tapered hollow-guide piece is proposed. We fabricated the coupler which has a conical-tapered, Pyrex glass tube as the tapered section. The bore size of the taper-guide's input end is 3 mm and the output end is 0.7 mm which is the same as the size of coupled hollow fibers. The results of preliminary experiments show that the launching system has a large tolerance for the coupling condition between laser light and hollow fibers.
