Abstract
OPTICAL FIBERS CAN BE DEVELOPED TO TRANSMIT INTENSE LASER RADIATION THROUGH SELECTIVE CHOICE OF MATERIALS AND DESIGN PARAMETERS FOR THE FIBERS IN THE WAVELENGTH RANGE OF 0.193-10.6 MICRON. THESE FIBERS CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO DELIVERY SYSTEMS FOR PROGRAMMED DELIVERY OF LASER ENERGY AND INTEGRITY VERIFICATION. THE PRESENT PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PHASE I FEASIBILITY STUDY PROGRAM COMPRISING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DEDICATED SILICA CORE 0.22 NA FIBER SOURCE SPECIFIALLY TO BE EMPLOYED FOR THE TRANSMISSION OF INTENSE LASER RADIATION AT WAVELENGTHS 0.193-2.0 MICRON, A TRADE STUDY OF TECHNOLOGIES FOR DESIGN OF THE ELECTRO-OPTIC MODULE, AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF A LABORATORY PROTOTYPE DISTRIBUTOR AS WELL AS AN INTEGRITY VERIFICATION SYSTEM. THE STUDY WILL BE SUPPLEMENTED BY CRITICALLY REVIEWING OPTICAL FIBER MATERIALS SUITABLE AT 10.6 MICRON AND STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNIQUES FOR POLISHING THE END SURFACES OF THE FIBER.
