Paper Abstract

It is shown that under certain conditions, the chief mechanism limiting the maximal light intensity transmittable through silica fiber is stimulated Raman scattering. The threshold intensities leading to irreversible fiber damage via overheating have been estimated on the basis of an approximate theoretical model of thermal effect of stimulated Raman scattering. Dependencies of the threshold intensity on the physico-chemical properties of the fiber materials and on the sizes of the fiber cross-section have been determined.
