Paper Abstract

This paper describes some observations of high pulsed laser damage on optical fiber endfaces (approximately 8 - 9 GW/cm2). In the experimental set-up, the pulse of an Nd-Yag laser (wavelength 1060 nm, pulse duration 10 ns, output energy 0.3 J) is focused upstream from the end surface. Five-hundred-forty micrometers core diameter fibers are used. For a limited number of pulses, transmitted energies can raise 50 to 115 mJ.
