Paper Abstract

The dispersion curves of tapered fibers at various geometries are characterized by using white-light interferometry. In this presentation, the white-light interference patterns at frequencies near the taper’s second zero-dispersion frequency are measured and discussed in detail. A more convenient formula is proposed to fit the experimental data at these frequencies. As a result, small dispersion values can be calculated more efficiently.
