Paper Abstract

A beam-homogenizing device consisting of a short tip of a silver-halide infrared fiber removes the effect of low-order multimode generated by bending of hollow guides. A series of experiments employing a CO2 laser shows that the solid fiber functions as a homogenizer with a small insertion loss of 0.2 dB.
