Paper Abstract

Fiber buffer coatings, protective sheaths, and cable assembly techniques strongly impact mechanical and optical properties of infrared fiberoptics. Many materials common to silica fiber fabrication have strong infrared signature bands which may adversely affect the optical performance of infrared fiberoptics. Material selection and assembly methods for process hardening of infrared fibers for applications are discussed.
