TaperSimulator V 0.01

This little program simulates the creation of a fiber taper. Heat is provided to the fiber by a CO2 laser that scans along the fiber. While the fiber is being pulled (pull length 'x') the length of the hot zone is varied according to a polynomial function represented by L0+L1x+L2x^2 etc. The resulting taper is displayed along with the taper radius, maximum angle and taper length.
