Optical fiber coating concentricity: measurement and analysis

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Backscattering of laser light that is incident at right angles to the axis of an optical fiber is utilized to evaluate the degree of eccentricity of a plastic jacket on the fiber. An analytical treatment of the problem based on ray optics is shown to be in excellent agreement with experiments, which are capable of detecting core-to-jacket offsets on the order of 1 μm.
