Abstract
The strongly forward directed and torch like beam profile and spatial irradiance distribution of a laser beam delivered by a fiber may be changed by modifying the fiber tip optically. This paper briefly reviews the optical and thermal properties of several modified fiber tips used in conjunction with various lasers.
