Fiber-optic beam shaper based an multimode interference
Abbreviated Journal Title
OPTICAL FIBERS; SENSOR; FILTER; DESIGN; Optics
A new method of fiber-optic based beam shaping is investigated both numerically and experimentally. A cylindrically symmetric method of lines (MoLs) is developed to simulate the device. The device is fabricated by fusion splicing a predetermined length of multimode fiber (MMF) to a single-mode fiber. The multimode interference (MMI) effects create ring-shaped field profiles at certain positions inside the MMY The shaped beam can be used in medical applications requiring particular irradiation patterns.
