Paper Abstract

Optical lightguides (fibers) allow to guide light in a flexible manner to a working area. Such lightguides are however enherently very narrow structures, which leads to extremely high intensities in the guides even for moderate powers. The limiting processes for undisturbed transmission are described and for a variety of parameters and situations the corresponding numerical values are given, as far as available. The high intensity processes recently led to several interesting new device-applications.
