Author Affiliations +
The taper (i.e. thin fiber with transitions from large to small diameter) is created during pulling of the molten fiber. Its shape depends on many parameters of the pulling process, such as pulling speed, pulling temperature, pulling stages step, etc. This paper attempts to describe the taper shape as a function of pulling parameters and provide comparison for different heating methods.
