Abstract
Five different multimode optical fibers have been coated with an antireflective coating to minimize transmission losses. The transmission, the stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) threshold and the laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) were determined for the fibers. The measurements are performed at 1064 nm with 24 ns pulse duration. Fiber transmissions reach up to >99.5% for optimal laser beam coupling. A damage threshold of up to 125 J/cm2 could be achieved. The fiber coatings were investigated using atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
