Paper Abstract

In this paper the influence of elastooptic effect on mode propagation in fiber structure is considered in context of laser-to-fiber coupling improvement. Numerical calculation results of light propagation in the fiber under homogenous and nonhomogeneous hydrostatic pressure are presented. Elasto-optic effect causes changes in the transmission properties of the fibers. Spot-size converter can be realized by mechanical deformation on the fiber and laser- to-fiber coupling efficiency can be controlled.
