Abstract


Traditionally, optical fibers have been used as communication lines and optical sensors; however, these have multiple other uses, for example, the interaction and entrapment of microparticles. This article studies the computational modelling of the propagation of light that comes out of conventional, single-mode and multimode optical fibers, which is of interest when studying the interaction of light with microparticles. As a parameter of analysis and quantification we use the degree of diffraction of the light propagation beams, at different distances from the optical fibers. Resulted intensity field distributions give us important microscopic information to consider for light interaction with such microparticles.

Keywords


Optical fiber, radiation pressure, poynting vector, interaction and entrapment of microparticles.
