Paper Abstract

Opitical fibers with not uniform terminations to be used for a better collection and trasmission of light have been carefully analyzed. The coupling efficiency of a plane wave with a linearly tapered fiber has been calculated in different geometrical conditions. Developments and some interesting applications are discussed.
