Paper Abstract

The construction and characterization is described of enlarged taper ended fibers to be used in laser radiation delivery systems for medical applications. The measured near and far field patterns are also compared with those evaluated by a ray optics method. Experi-ments utilizing such tapered fibers coupled to a Nd:YAG laser, performed at the S. Maria Nuova Hospital of Florence, are also reported.
