German term or phrase: Querschnittswandler
In brochure for lighting equipment for scientific and technical applications:
"Mit Hilfe von faseroptischen Querschnittswandlern oder Querschnittswandler-aufsätzen ist durch die extrem seitliche Lichtzufuhr vor allem bei forensischen Anwendungen die Struktur der zu beleuchtenden Fläche besser erkennbar."

A glossary on Proz gives "sectional transformer", but this term only produces 5 hits using a meta-search engine.
