Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new type of dynamic chemical etching is used to fabricate different fiber tips with different cone angles. It was done by controlling surface level of hydrofluoric acid relative to the fiber, with changing volume of the acid in the container using a syringe pump. Using this method the cone angle of the tip is effectively controlled and angles between 1° and 30° was obtained.
