Therapy for ultraviolet laser beams: Hydrogen-treated fibers

Tuesday, August 12, 2014 - 05:02 in Physics & Chemistry

Scientists have known for years that hydrogen can alter the performance of optical fibers, which are often used to transmit or even generate laser light in optical devices. Now researchers have put this to practical use to make optical fibers that transmit stable, high-power ultraviolet laser light for hundreds of hours without damage.
