FIG. 1.

Sketch of the etching apparatus. Two lines of five stripped fibers are maintained in a first Teflon beaker filled with wax. The unit is fixed on a second Teflon beaker containing the acid. Once etching is completed, fibers are pulled up mechanically.

SEM images of the typical etched fibers obtained. (a) Multimode fiber AFS 105/125Y, (b) detail of the tip of multimode fiber, and (c) single mode fiber FS-SC-6324 (d) detail of the tip of single mode fiber. Typical dimensions are diameter , taper angle for the multimode and 30° for the single mode, and length.
