Abstract

Light scattered from a perfect cylindrical quartz fiber was studied as a function of fiber rotation, bend, bend and rotation, and tilt. These pure geometrical manipulations are basic and easily controlled perturbations that affect both the total intensity and geometrical distribution of the scattered light. The scattering patterns from these perfect fibers are more complex than first suspected.
