In this paper we describe the results of laser damage threshold studies conducted on silica fibers with etched random anti-reflection surfaces on their end faces. This study includes damage threshold of Motheyed surfaces on witness sample and fibers. Initial work has shown very promising results with damage thresholds greater than 46J/cm2 at 755nm on fibers.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
