Highly efficient, reliable packaging of semiconductor optical devices such as lasers and optical amplifiers remains an expensive and challenging task. In this paper, we present an approach to single-mode fiber coupling which results in relaxed alignment tolerances during the package assembly process, while maintaining coupling efficiencies as high as 34-40%. In addition, the approach provides some versatility with respect to the placement of passive optical components inside the package.
