Figures (4)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Model of a fused fiber taper before (a) and after (b) the taper is formed. Δz is the extent of the heated region, and l is the taper elongation.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Fiber diameter reduction ratio as a function of the parameter lz for the constant volume parabolic model and the model of Ref. 6. The experimental points are fit to the constant volume parabolic model.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Taper shape as a function of distance from the center of the taper for four taper elongations. The solid curves are from experimental measurements, and the dashed curves are parabolic fits.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Parabolic parameter γ vs the parameter lz. Experimental points are from the fit of Fig. 2. The solid curve is Eq. (4) assuming Δz = 2.33 mm.
