Optical waveguides for infrared laser sources

Isreal Gannot, Ronald W. Waynant

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Mid-infrared free electron lasers (FELs) is a tunable laser source used for testing broadband transmission waveguides. This laser has a unique pulse structure, but its high peak powers can serve as an excellent testing tool for waveguides damage. The FEL maybe used in the operating room, by which one of the waveguides being developed can transmit energy reliably to the operation site. Shorter wavelengths FELs are also being developed, fibers and waveguides will be needed for those wavelengths.
