    A simplified way to make a good surface for contacting a mirror to an optical fiber by heating the fiber end is described. The technique causes the deposited core and cladding of a fiber made by the modified chemical vapor deposition method to bulge slightly, providing a pivoting surface for...

    We have developed an optical fiber probe which is well suited for measuring localized light emission in plasmas. The plasma emission intensity distribution along the axis of a parallel-plate rf glow discharge has been used as an example for comparing measurements between the optical fiber probe...

    A microscope-based fluorescence correlation apparatus for diffusivity measurements is described. The use of optical fibers offers not only the advantage of setup flexibility but also an improved quality of the illuminating beam. The achieved beam radius is as small as 0.4 µm, and the size of...

    We demonstrate an optical fiber mounting device which allows microlensed fibers to be pressed repeatedly against the cleaved facets of semiconductor laser diodes without causing impact damage to the facet. The device constrains the fiber against lateral movement while using the resilience of a...

    In order to reveal the physical processes taking place within the 'μ10' microwave discharge ion thruster, internal plasma diagnosis is indispensable. However, the ability of metallic probes to access microwave plasmas biased at a high voltage is limited from the standpoints of the disturbance...

    A microtensile device (MTD) especially designed to carry out test on nonstandard specimens such as thin wires, polymers, and biological samples is described. The use of a feedback control system in order to apply the load and simultaneously assure axial deformations allows for measurement with...

    We describe locking of a fiber-based Mach–Zehnder interferometer. This work used a coherent state as input with a mean of 0.1 photons per gating period of an avalanche photodiode operated in geiger mode. Feedback from the avalanche photodiode loop was used to lock the intensity of the...

    We study the effect of strain on the properties of a one-dimensional acoustic grating: a tapered optical fiber with a periodically varying diameter. Its spectral response has a strong frequency stop band for flexural waves. Changing the tension of the fiber changes the wave velocity, and so...
