A new mode converter based on tapered hollow optical fibre is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Two segments of a singlemode fibre and a tapered hollow ring-core fibre were concatenated serially to convert a fundamental mode to a ring-shaped mode. The fabrication, far field pattern and insertion loss of the proposed mode converter were measured and discussed.
