Paper Abstract

In development of various devices on the basis of IR fibers is very important to know such their optical characteristics as spectral transmission, numerical aperture, far-field divergency with various conditions of fiber launching and, in particular, stability of these characteristics with fiber length. In the present work the results of research of changing the specified above characteristics with length in polycrystalline AgHal-fibers are presented. It is shown, that the total optical losses in these fibers change along the fiber and follow the variations of losses in original crystal. The practical recommendattions of fiber choice for various applications are given.
