Abstract

The application of single-mode fibers to the beam delivery of moderate average power Nd:YAG light for precision machining is studied. In particular, such fibers are evaluated for the example application of narrow kerf-width cutting of a thin stainless steel sheet. The results show that such fibers are capable of delivering high beam quality but moderate-power light.
