Abstract:
Recent experiments with optical fibers have reached a remarkable development for optical communication spectroscopy as well as a medical technology. Hollow optical fibers are required for optical communications. The measurement of the transmission of light through fibers can provide information about the fiber quality and about the far-field energy which radiates from the fiber end. We used five flexible hollow fused quartz fibers to study laser beam propagation down the fiber axis. Five different refractive index fluids were prepared and inserted into the fiber core to measure the transmitted intensity as a function of core property. The plots of the normalized, relative transmitted intensity measured as a function of the beam insertion point show the dependence of the transmitted intensity as a function of fiber diameter and refractive index fluid.
