Paper Abstract

A new non-communication optical fiber--Multimode Tapered Optical Fiber (MTOF) is designed for Desktop Rapid Prototyping System(DRPS), which delivers much greater output energy than non-MTOF of the same output diameter. Its transmission ratio much increased. The DRPS' process is introduced, followed by the choose and design of MTOF, coupling and focusing of UV light. MTOF has some advantages, such as flexibility,low cost,high efficiency. The application of MTOF in DRPS that requires low cost will make concrete fundamental for populating the system.
