Abstract
Damage to optical fiber for medical laser delivery has been observed where the fiber is routinely bent while transmitting high power laser light. In an effort to understand the failure mechanism we measured the temperatures of bent sections of several different types of fibers with different bend diameters. We will discuss our results and some aspects of possible failure mechanisms.
