Paper Abstract

The effect of the 2.94 μm Er:YAG laser radiation propagation through sapphire fibers with diameters varying from 250 μm to 550 μm, on the quality of the laser beam is investigated. A comparison was made between the fibers performance in free-running and Q-switched Er:YAG laser radiation.
