Abstract

The variation of the fringe spacing of the far zone scattered intensity of an illuminated optical fiber has been plotted vs the scattering angle, theoretically and experimentally. A method for measuring fiber diameters by taking the Fourier transform of the scattering intensity is described. Theoretical and experimental results have been compared at various angles for different fiber diameters.
