Paper Abstract

A CO2 laser based system for the tapering of optical fibers is described, which is capable of fabricating tapers with diameters down to 5 μm and with lengths greater than 30 mm. The system uses a range of monitoring techniques to observe the tapering of optical fibers. In-line optical fiber Bragg gratings are used to measure the strain induced in the fiber during the fabrication process.
