Hollow Glass Waveguides Presentations

HGW Presentations

Hollow waveguides present an attractive alternative to other solid-core IR fibers. One key feature of hollow guides are: their ability to transmit wavelengths well beyond 20 µm. To view presentations made on our group's hollow glass waveguide research, check our presentations archive.

Single-crystal Fibers Presentations

SCF Presentations

Single-crystal (SC) fiber optics have been grown for many years, with the laser-heated pedestal growth (LHPG) the most common technique. SC fibers have the potential of delivering extremely high laser energies. To view presentations made on our group's single-crystal fiber research, check our presentations archive.
