Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPTICAL FIBER DIFFUSION
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DIFFUSION PAR FIBRE OPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An optical fiber diffusion system and a method of manufacturing an optical fiber diffusion device that has a precisely-controlled emission region are disclosed. An optical fiber diffusion device is produced by subjecting a light emission region (40) of an optical fiber (30) to a series of controlled cycles of stress, heating, elongation and cooling, resulting in a pattern of deformation and modification of the fiber and cladding.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de diffusion par fibre optique et un procédé de fabrication d'un dispositif de diffusion par fibre optique qui possède une région d'émission commandée avec précision. Un dispositif de diffusion par fibre optique est produit en soumettant une région d'émission de lumière d'une fibre optique à une série de cycles régulés de contrainte, chauffage, allongement et refroidissement, ce qui permet d'obtenir un profil de déformation et de modification de la fibre et de la gaine.
