|Title:||Polymer and tapered silica fiber connection for polymer fiber sensor application|
André Delgado Gomes
|Abstract:||A new type of polymer and silica connection is proposed. A tapered SMF- 28 silica optical fiber tip is fabricated using a CO2 laser by focusing and stretching the fiber. The tapered silica tip is inserted in one of the holes of a microstructured polymer optical fiber using a 3D alignment system. Using a supercontinuum source, the spectrum is observed after one and after two connections. The polymer fiber is characterized in curvature while using the previous connection.|
