Optical power transmission of 5-μm band CO laser beam through As2S3 glass core Teflon fluorinated ethylene propylene clad fibers is described. The maximum transmitted power is as high as 62 W with a 700-μm core diameter fiber, which corresponds to a power intensity of 16 kW/cm2 at the fiber output end. The influence of fiber bending on the transmission characteristics is also reported.

    Since their initial development, fibre metal laminates (FMLs) have slowly started to be used by industry, particularly the aerospace sector. One of the reasons for the relatively slow adoption of FMLs is due to the difficulties faced in shaping them to the desired geometry. Whilst traditional...
