Abstract

Free space beam delivery has long been the only option to transport high energy laser pulses. But what happens if the free space is surrounded by an optical fiber? Micro-structured hollow core fibers now make it possible to confine the laser light inside a small hollow core and transmit pico- and femtosecond pulses of high energy with excellent beam quality. Packaged into a rugged laser light cable, this is likely the start of a new era in laser beam delivery.
