Polymeric microelement on the top of the fiber formation and optical loss in this element analysis
Abstract: This paper describes the formation technology of polymeric microlenses self-organized on the fiber top in the limited reaction volume. The loss inserted to the optical coupling channel and their sources was investigated.
