Title:
TAPERED FUSED WAVEGUIDE FOR TEETH WHITENING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2005046501
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A radiation emitting apparatus (10) is disclosed that emits a substantially homogenous beam of radiation from an irregularly shaped output end (14). As described herein, a radiation emitting apparatus includes a bundled fiberguide (11) coupled to an energy distribution tuner. The bundled fiber guide (11) is coupled to the energy distribution tuner (21) to receive a substantially uniform distribution of high power energy. The bundled fiber guide (11) is configured to distribute the energy to emit a substantially uniform distribution of lower power energy toward a target surface, such as a body surface. The bundled fiber guide may include a plurality of fused optic fibers, a plurality of beam splitting mirror elements, or tapered waveguides.
