Cascaded Cladding Light Extracting Strippers for High Power Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers
(Wei Guo et al, June 2014)
This publication describes the advantage of using cascaded cladding light strippers. Using a sequence of recoating materials, having a gradually higher refractive index, the heat is dissipated more uniformly along with the stripper. Instead of one high-temperature hot spot, there are several lower-temperature hot spots.
This design leads to lower temperatures, resulting in higher reliability.
Note: MY Polymers has a complete sequence of materials for cascaded light strippers (e.g. LM-142, LM-146, LM-150)
