ABSTRACT
The article reports on how a handheld, battery-operated fiber finder measures the light escaping from an optical fiber when clamped in a V-shaped block under slight pressure. With no room on the front panel for a power switch, the design requires a sliding clamp mechanism to turn the unit on at its extreme travel position when an operator inserts a fiber.

    We develop a method for the fabrication of functional microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) by selectively filling the air holes with liquid phase materials, where we utilize the dependence of filling speed on the size of the air holes. As a demonstration, we construct a hybrid MOF by filling...
