Tapered-beam expander for single-mode optical-fibre gap devices

K.P.Jedrzejewski, F.Martinez, J.D.Minelly, C.D.Hussey, F.P.Payne


A simple practical and controllable beam expander can be constructed from a single-mode optical fibre which has been overjacketed in a capillary of lower refractive index and then tapered. The properties of such an expanded beam in a gap device are also investigated.
