Abstract
The availability of low loss and high strength chalcogenide fibers is enabling many applications, including biomedical. We report the use of chalcogenide fibers for IR laser power delivery for surgery, biomedical spectroscopy (tissue analysis) and scanning near field IR microscopy (SNIM). For example, lateral resolution of 20 nm and optical resolution of about 100 nm have been demonstrated for SNIM.
