Abstract

High-intensity delivery of Carbon monoxide (CO) laser ( lambda approx. 5. 4 mu m) power by an As//2S//3 chalcogenide glass optical fiber is reported. Transmission of 4-W cw power is achieved in a 200- mu m core diam unclad fiber without any deterioration. Light intensity of 12. 8 kW/cm**2 at the fiber output was attained. Use of this power for various applications, especially medical, is discussed.
