Abstract

Here we demonstrate the use of differential interference contrast microscopy with the inverse Abel transform to accurately obtain the refractive-index profile of a single-mode optical fiber. The application of this nondestructive imaging analysis technique provides high precision refractive-index information about the fiber. This technique is robust, rapid, and has diffraction limited spatial resolution
