Paper Abstract

We investigate the effects of coating thickness on the scattering losses of metal coated active fibre. A range of low numerical aperture metal coated optical fibres are placed in etchant solutions whilst measuring propagation loss as a function of time. By utilising concurrent coating diameter measurements, we are able to correlate propagation losses with coating thickness. Experimentally we find a monotonic dependence on coating thickness and scattering loss. We present the results of this work, providing useful parameters for high power metal coated fibre laser designs.
