An optical assembly is disclosed which utilizes a pair of separate members to support an optical device and an associated optical fiber. Fiducial features, in conjunction with an optical device conductive attachment means, are utilized to provide self-alignment between the device and the fiber. Aligned fiducials are formed on each member such that when the members are physically joined, alignment between the optical device and fiber is achieved. In particular, the members are mated such that a direct optical signal path between the device and fiber is formed.
