Abstract
There is a growing requirement for high power laser pulses to be delivered from the laser to the workpiece via a fiber optical cable. The power and energy handling capability of these fibers are affected by both linear and nonlinear effects including Raman and Brillouin scattering and are ultimately limited by the laser induced damage threshold of the fiber itself. This paper summarizes the power handling capability limits of such fibers and includes comments on recommended launching and delivery procedures.
