Abstract
The aim of the paper is to discuss a non-invasive method for a glass fibre diameter characterization. The method involves scattering of low-coherent light in the vicinity of a primary rainbow. Theoretical considerations include discussion on complex as well as approximate models of the rainbow. A simple inverse model based on the Airy theory of rainbow is used to characterize a glass fibre diameter. The empirical analysis is mainly devoted to confirm the theoretical predictions and present some achievements in the formation and processing of the Airy rainbow with the use of high-power light emitting diode (LED).
