|Title:||The fiber connection method using a tapered silica fiber tip for microstructured polymer optical fibers|
André Delgado Gomes
|Abstract:||In this work, an alternative method of coupling light into microstructured polymer fibers is presented. The solution consists in using a fiber taper fabricated with a CO2 laser. The connection is formed by inserting a tapered silica tip into the holes of a microstructured polymer fiber. This alternative method is duly characterized and the feasibility of such fiber connection to enable the polymer fiber as a displacement sensor is also demonstrated. © 2018 by the authors.|
