Abstract
Concave cone fabricated by chemical etching process similar to previous technique used to make fiber tips (convex cone) is presented. Typically, optical fibers are etched in a fluorhydric (HF) solution with a thin layer of oil floating on top of the HF. The present investigation shows that concave cone etched fiber (CCEF) can be obtained by following the beginning of etching process. Comprehensive measurements of the dependence of the width and height of taper angle of the concave cone are plotted. The results of this investigation have led to an optimum approach for fiber cores alignment that is suitable for use in connecting fibers for efficient coupling between single-mode fibers.
