Adiabatically tapered single-mode fibers provide a novel and effective method of gaining access to the optical field inside an optical fiber. The fabrication of low-loss tapered fibers with waist diameters of less than one micron is described. By surrounding a tapered fiber with laser-dye solution, compact very efficient amplifiers, saturable absorbers, and super- fluorescent sources have been demonstrated.
