Abstract
Metal clad single mode optical fibres are successfully embedded into stainless steel using a layer by layer based additive manufacturing technology based on selective laser sintering of powered stainless steel material. The single mode fibre has been coated with a protective Ni metal layer to facilitate thermal protection and bonding to the stainless steel matrix. A loss of ~1 dB is observed after embedding which is attributed to micro bending in the embedded section.
