Paper Abstract

Side-emitting optical fiber designs and main parameters have been studied. A simplified model to describe emission of the 'glowing' fiber is developed. Basic expressions for the emission parameters as functions of the input radiation intensity, distance along the fiber axis and scattering efficiency longitudinal distribution are given for several design modifications. The model assumptions have been checked experimentally by testing silica core side-glowing optical fiber samples.
