Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputConference publication


We demonstrate a new method of fabrication of Surface Nanoscale Axial Photonics (SNAP) structures. We show experimentally that a SNAP microresonator with nanoscale effective radius variation can be introduced by bending of an optical fiber. Our results are in reasonable agreement with the developed theory.
