Paper Abstract

A new type of mode converter using a tapered hollow silica optical fiber is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Three segments of single mode, hollow, and multimode fibers were concatenated serially to convert the fundamental mode to a ring shape mode. The proposed scheme could be applied to convert the fundamental LP01 mode to TEN, TM and LP02 modes. Evolution of mode filed along the taper and the insertion loss were measured.
