Paper Abstract

Two applications are presented in which use is made of optical fibers in measurements by the light-scattering technique. It is demonstrated how the use of fiber optics can be suitable for both simple light intensity detection and photoncount correlation of intensity detected. GRIN-rod lenses are used to focus the light transmitted through optical fiber. In the past few years, there has been a growing interest in the use of multimode optical fibers, which is currently playing a leading role in optical information transmission. Here we want to give some examples of the use of optical fibers in the area of light scattering. It will be pointed out that optical fibers are very suitable in many practical situations. Moreover, we shall see that, by coupling optical fibers to GRIN-rod lenses, we can realize quite interesting sensing systems.
