Post-Processing of Optical Fibres Through Tapering and NanostructuringTakasugi, Eric H.
The purpose of this thesis is to explore how the properties of an optical fibre can be changed to expand on their utility. This includes both giving fibres new properties as well as enhancing pre-existing ones. These can be done by altering the dimensions and geometry of the fibre or by changing the media in and around the fibre faces. This thesis explores all of these aspects: optical components ... read more
