Using a pulsed dye laser operating at 392 nm, Allison et al.3 examined damage to step-index, multimode fibers having pure ... More recently, Trott and Meeks5 examined the high-power transmission capabilities at 1 .06-\im of step-index, ... Fiber diameters varied from 200 to 1000 microns, and fiber end faces were polished using a small commercial polisher. ... Although air breakdown at the focal point limited their ability to establish limits for fibers with larger diameters, the authorsanbsp;...
