Paper Abstract

This paper reports the results of laser beam attenuation measurements for a u.v. transmitting fiber in terms of the pulse energy and wavelength. The investigation was carried out in view of the fact that all-silica u.v. fibers may have an important role to play in the evolution of new spectroscopic techniques such as Resonant Laser Ablation. The advantages and disadvantages of employing this type of fiber within a high power laser-based system must be clearly established by characterizing the attenuation properties of the fiber experimentally within the required operating ranges of wavelength and pulse energy (i.e. launch energy).
