Paper Abstract

A real time monitoring of the fiber delivery system is investigated, based on the detection of the backscattering variations due to a damage of the fiber distal end. The modal backscattering distributions from flat, bulb and damaged tips in air and in water were studied utilizing a fiber-fiber directional coupler. The results seem to be encouraging in view of practical applications.
