Paper Abstract

The enhancement of polycrystalline MIR-fibers for 4 - 16 um range allows to spread their practical usage in medicine. The improved parameters of core/clad MIR-fibers are considered for the main areas of medical applications: power delivery for CO2-laser surgery; fiber probes for IR-spectroscopy diagnostics; and fiber pyrometry or IR-imaging with fiber bundles.
