Paper Abstract

This paper presents a simple method for manufacturing fiber tapered through elongation, by the combination of heating with a butane torch and controlled stretch. Reducing the diameter of the multimode fiber of 100 microns to 10 microns, the displacement of the fiber is performed through bipolar stepping motors with one driver L293B and one PIC16F628A microcontroller for controlling movement. The system allows control of the desired fiber diameter up to 10 microns; the results are seen in a microscope and a rule of separation 2.5μm micrometer to calculate the diameter of the fiber.
