Sapphire Fibers: Optical Attenuation And Splicing Techniques
(Optical Society of America, 1995-12-01)
The optical attenuation in sapphire fibers was examined. Attenuation was found to depend heavily on injection conditions. A number of techniques for making sapphire-silica fiber splices were attempted, with an effort toward ...
Effect Of External Index Of Refraction on Multimode Fiber Couplers
(Optical Society of America, 1995)
The dependence of the performance of fused-taper multimode fiber couplers on the refractive index of the material surrounding the taper region has been investigated both theoretically and experimentally. It has been ...
Fiberoptic Temperature Sensors Based on Differential Spectral Transmittance Reflectivity And Multiplexed Sensing Systems
(Optical Society of America, 1995-07-01)
A concept for optical temperature sensing based on the differential spectral reflectivity/transmittance from a multilayer dielectric edge filter is described and demonstrated. Two wavelengths, lambda(1) and lambda(2), from ...
