Optical damage in fibres: the fibre fuse

Optical damage in fibres: the fibre fuse
Optical damage in fibres: the fibre fuse
We demonstrate experimentally that catastrophic breakdown in the cores of optical fibres can be initiated thermally at modest optical intensities, forming periodic damage tracks uniform over several centimetres. The dynamics of this breakdown are investigated

Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally that catastrophic breakdown in the cores of optical fibres can be initiated thermally at modest optical intensities, forming periodic damage tracks uniform over several centimetres. The dynamics of this breakdown are investigated
