Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The transmitted light from side-illuminated transparent optical fiber taper couplers is analyzed. A direct measure of the slope and the diameter variations of the taper is obtained with ease from the deflected (refracted) beam and the displayed far-field diffraction pattern.
