A 1-mm-diameter fiber-optic photoreceiver with a sidesurface interface is proposed. By controlling the scattering part embedded in the fiber, the receiving sensitivity along the fiber's axis is successfully flattened over a 5-m-length. The simulation results suggest a potential for a large-area photo-detector of ~3-m-spherical diameter.
