Paper Abstract

The use of optical fibers to transmit high power UV pulses from an excimer laser is desirable for many applications. We have tested different tapered and untapered fibers with regard to power transmission properties and lifetime at 308 nm from a XeCl excimer laser with unstable resonator (8 nsec pulse length). The transmitted power density in a 600 μm tapered fiber decreases from initally 1.25 to 1.0 GW/cm2 over a period of 105 pulses. This is sufficient for a lot of applications, such as medical surgery or etching of selected types of ceramics.
