Accurate cross-sectional stress profiling of optical fibers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-09)
A novel technique for determining two-dimensional, cross-sectional stress distributions in optical fibers and fiber-based devices is presented. Use of the Brace-Kohler compensator technique and a polarization microscope ...
Concurrent three-dimensional characterization of the refractive-index and residual-stress distributions in optical fibers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-08)
A three-dimensional index-stress distribution (3DISD) measurement method for determining concurrently the refractive-index distributions (RIDs) and residual-stress distributions (RSDs) in optical fibers is presented. The ...
Algorithm performance in the determination of the refractive-index profile of optical fibers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-02)
Three algorithms for computing the refractive-index profile of azimuthally symmetric optical fibers via the inverse Abel transform are compared to determine their relative accuracies. Appropriate values of algorithm ...
Refractive-index profiling of azimuthally asymmetric optical fibers by microinterferometric optical phase tomography
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-05)
Accurate nondestructive refractive-index profiling is needed in the modeling, design, and manufacturing of optical fibers and fiber devices. Most profile measurement techniques cannot correctly characterize fibers with ...
Microinterferometric optical phase tomography for measuring small, asymmetric refractive-index differences in the profiles of optical fibers and fiber devices
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-01)
A new technique, microinterferometric optical phase tomography, is introduced for use in measuring small, asymmetric refractive-index differences in the profiles of optical fibers and fiber devices. The method combines ...
