Paper Abstract

The transmission of chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) emission through several kinds of multimode quartz optical fiber is measured in order to explore the applicability of COILs for the extraction of natural resources. The minimum transmission loss through these fibers is 0.64 dB/km, and high-power transmission for a distance of kilometers is shown to be feasible. Laser emission at an average input power of 1 kW is successfully transmitted through a multimode optical fiber for a distance of 1 km with an efficiency of 80%.
