Paper Abstract

We have combined a fusion-pulling technique and a standard metal-coating technique to fabricate in-line single-mode fiber filters, polarizers and sensors. The reduction of the core and cladding diameters in a tapered fiber causes the evanescent field to extend beyond the outer boundary. Thus, when a metal film is evaporated on a tapered fiber, the surface plasma modes cause coupling to the fiber mode.
