During the past 10 years several publications described pilot units of metal halide infrared fibers. The reason such fibers are not yet available commercially is based on the particular properties of the unorganic metal halide salts used for the fabrication of these fibers. The paper analyse a complete fiber unit for medical application of CO2 Laser inside the human body, and summarise problems in commercialisation of metal halide infrared fibers.
