Abstract

Fizeau micro-interferometry is applied to evaluate some parameters of a curved single-mode optical fiber. The field shift of the fundamental mode and the associated transition loss in a perturbed index-profile fiber due to bending are determined. The preceding fiber parameters are determined as a function of the shift of multiple-beam Fizeau fringes. For a curvature range between 0.13 and 0.053 mm-1, a range of field shift between 0.44 and 0.21 μm is determined. A fraction of the transition loss ranging between 0.0056 and 0.028 is calculated within the same curvature range. Because our method has high index resolution and spatial resolution, it shows good agreement with theory. The results and the agreement with theory indicate that the use of multiple-beam Fizeau fringes is a promising technique that is capable of determining with high accuracy some guidance parameters of the optical fibers.
