Paper Abstract

In order to qualify infrared ("IR") fiber materials, components and subsystems for specific medical applications, it is necessary to conduct the appropriate tests to insure that required safety and performance levels are met. Such tests include transmission and power-handling measurements, output characterization, environmental and mechanical analyses, and toxicity evaluation. Several of the test parameters and techniques are different when evaluating fibers for medical applications than for communications or other applications. This paper describes the basic tests which are required for the proper evaluation of IR fibers for medical applications.
