Paper Abstract

This paper describes the observation of a fiber fuse observed in the core of a high-power high-NA, all-glass, double-clad fiber. Fiber fuse is a phenomenon that results in a specific type of catastrophic destruction of an optical fiber-core from the point of initiation toward the light source. It is so named because its appearance is very similar to a burning fuse. In this paper, we examine the origin or the initiation source for the fiber fuse observed in the double-clad fiber. Furthermore, we propose a two-step thermal mechanism for the fiber-fuse generation in optical fiber.
