Abstract

The proposed work will design, model, and demonstrate a proof of concept anti-reflective surface (ARS) on bare and connectorized infrared fiber optic cable assembly. The ARS will provide low Fresnel reflection (<2.5% in the spectral region 1.4 micron to 5 micron, and <1% at a single optimized wavelength) and high LIDT for both pulsed operation (>10 J/cm2 at 10ns pulse widths) and continuous wave operation (>1MW/cm2). The Phase I effort will include prototype plans to be developed under Phase II.
