Abstract
A deliberate employment of mode mixing is utilized to make a source that illuminates a fiber in the simulated "steady state distribution". Mode mixing is achieved by combining power exchange due to bending and micro-bending. Discussing these effects design criteria are derived and a practical solution is given. These mode mixers have been used for fiber evaluation and high quality device assembly.
