Abstract

We report broadening in spectrum as light is backreflected from a propagating fiber fuse. The formation of micrometer-size voids results in periodic changes in Fresnel reflection occurring in the leading part of the fuse. High-resolution measurement of the optical spectrum via heterodyne detection revealed an upshift (Doppler shift) in the optical frequency and discrete frequency components that are characteristic of amplitude modulation due to periodic void formation.
