Paper Abstract

Optical fiber glass capillaries, in a variety of solutions, initially classical (refractive or reflective), and now photonic (diffractive and interference), are able to transmit high levels of optical power - CW and pulsed. It stems from the fact that the optical IR power is carried nearly totally in the air, noble gas or vacuum, but not in solid glass. The level of optical nonlinear effects in air is approximately 1000 lower than in the fiber grade glass. The paper discusses: possible propagation mechanisms in optical capillaries and good/bad sides of these mechanisms for transmission of high optical power, optimal high power fiber capillary parameters, types of used materials. There are underlined existing technical confinements and obtained transmission results. The development tendencies of a new generation of optical fiber capillaries are presented.
