Fiber Type Step Index MM; Length <100 m; Wavelength 190 to 2400 nm; Sheathing Stainless Steel Monocoil (Bare or PVC Coated); Termination High Power SMA, High Power FD-80, High Power FD-80 with Sapphire
Fiberguide’s high power laser assemblies use Fiberguide’s high power SMA and high power industrial FD-80 connectors to provide a fiber optic link between the laser source and the target. These high power laser assemblies are ideal for laser cutting, welding, drilling, and marking applications.
High power SMA and D-80 compatible connectors offer superior thermal management while minimizing connector stress for NA conservation. With their epoxy-free cantilevered nose design, Fiberguide’s high power assemblies allow thermal energy to safely dissipate without burning the surrounding material. Their laser-polished end faces – also available with anti-reflective (AR) coating – maximize power handling capability.
When selecting optical cable assemblies for power delivery systems, designers must consider the power limitations of the three main components of the cable assembly: the base material, the input connector, and the mode stripper (if used). Contact the AMS Technologies fiber optic expert team to discuss your project’s requirements and to define and design your customized high power laser assembly!
As an option, some fiber types can also be end capped to achieve higher coupled power into a fiber core by reducing the power density at the air / silica interface, commonly the point of laser damage. End cap diameters and lengths are offered for select numerical apertures and fiber cores size, but can be easily customized for a variety of fiber types and specialized applications.
Additionally, all fiber types can be equipped on demand with Fiberguide’s patented RARe Motheye anti-reflective technology that enhances fiber transmission performance and significantly increases the damage threshold for your application over a large wavelength range.
