I currently have a laser set up that sends three lasers (red, yellow, green) into an optical fiber. On the other end of the fiber, the emitting light is shooting in essentially one forward direction. Does anyone have any suggestions or a suggestion on a certain material that if put on the end of the fiber, could emit the light in all directions so it is not focused on one spot.

Some sort of semi-clear glass or plastic material maybe? Kind of like how a frosted light bulb works. The light gets spread out and looks like its coming from the glass instead of from the filament itself.

Or maybe using a lens?
