A technique is presented that uses total-loss data from a conventional monochromator-based spectral-loss measurement set to obtain not only the Rayleigh and wavelength-independent scattering of a fiber but also the UV-band-edge absorption. That absorption causes the total-loss data to deviate significantly from a straight line when the data are plotted vs(More)
In this paper we describe the effect of different launching conditions on the loss measured with a calorimeter in short (~1-m) lengths of multimode optical fiber. A qualitative description of the relation between the energy distribution in the fiber and various excitation variables is given, and many examples are presented that illustrate the effect that(More)
In this paper we discuss the experimental verification of an empirical photoresist model presented previously. Photoresist grating depths predicted by the model are found to be in good agreement with those obtained from diffraction efficiency measurements. Total rates of field decay alpha(T) obtained from a theoretical analysis of the photoresist grating(More)
We present a technique for designing holo-graphically fabricated structures in photoresist. A method is given for obtaining a suitable initial resist thickness. The etch depth (Deltat) vs exposure (E) characteristic is determined experimentally for a fixed development time (T). The characteristics for other values of T are found using the linearity of(More)
