Paper Abstract

We apply standard emission and absorption techniques in conjunction with the side-illumination fluorescence (SIF) technique to characterize both co-polymer and dye-doped polymer fibers and fiber preforms. Highly reproducible co- copolymer and dye-doped polymer fiber fabrication is of great interest for many nonlinear optical applications. However, aggregation and environmental breakdown often affect the quality of the fiber. We quantify these effects in both the bulk and fiber geometries using emission and absorption techniques.
