Abstract

An integrated fiber-optic probe comprising a short length of multimode fiber that is fusion spliced to a monomode optical fiber has been fabricated for imaging and nonimaging applications. The fiber probe, typically 250 μm in diameter, can deliver a focused Gaussian spot approximately 25 μm in diameter at a distance of approximately 500 μm from the tip. Two off-the-shelf graded-index multimode fibers have been used in the fabrication of imaging and nonimaging probes. These integrated probes have considerably improved the spatial resolution of backscatter lensless fiber probes being utilized in the dynamic light-scattering characterization of colloidal suspension.
