Paper Abstract

The intrinsic and extrinsic processes that limit light propagation at low powers in infrared optical fibers are described. A theoretical V-curve is constructed and specific absorption coef - ficients and vibrational absorption of various impurities are tabulated versus frequency. The limitation imposed by parametric and nonlinear processes at high powers is described. Values for the critical powers for these processes in typical infrared optical fibers are presented.
