Acousto-optic control of speckle contrast in multimode fibers with a cylindrical piezoelectric transducer oscillating in the radial direction
We report efficient acousto-optic control of speckle contrast at the output of multimode fibers (MMFs) using a cylindrical piezoelectric transducer (PZT) vibrating in the radial direction. With appropriate packaging of an MMF around the PZT, periodic stretching and subsequent intensity modulation were achieved over the wound fiber to result in time-averaged smoothing of the output within a short time. It was experimentally confirmed that light passed through the vibrating PZT-fiber assembly maintains the virtually partial coherence irrespective of the guide length and power splitting. Real-time vibration-off/on movies were presented, and their single-frame excerpts were analyzed.

Abstract

We report efficient acousto-optic control of speckle contrast at the output of multimode fibers (MMFs) using a cylindrical piezoelectric transducer (PZT) vibrating in the radial direction. With appropriate packaging of an MMF around the PZT, periodic stretching and subsequent intensity modulation were achieved over the wound fiber to result in time-averaged smoothing of the output within a short time. It was experimentally confirmed that light passed through the vibrating PZT-fiber assembly maintains the virtually partial coherence irrespective of the guide length and power splitting. Real-time vibration-off/on movies were presented, and their single-frame excerpts were analyzed.
