Paper Abstract

The plasma outside deposition (POD) process is the basic technology for production of large core multimode silica fibers with highly fluorine doped cladding. Due to the all silica fiber construction such fibers can transmit several 10 kW of light power even with a core of 100 μm or less. An overview of the current capabilities and trends in high power laser applications will be presented, including very large fibers, shaped core and cladding designs and fibers with multiple claddings or multiple cores. These concepts can be applied to transmission fibers as well as fiber lasers. Heraeus is supporting these new developments by offering a growing number of materials, preforms and services.
