The transmission profile in a fiber during tapering

  1. Mar 20, 2015 #1
    I've been reading a article about pulling a fiber (or actually making it thinner until it becomes single mode).
    As the fiber's diameter decreases, the transmission profile of the light is showing oscillations. The frequancy of these oscillations increases as the fiber is getting pulled. But I don not understand the proces of these so-called multimode oscillations.
    Can anyone explain this to me?
