Author:

In some situations, it is necessary to remove light from the cladding of an optical fiber. Some examples:

Cladding mode strippers for use in high-power fiber lasers and amplifiers need to be able to handle substantial optical powers. It needs to be ensured that these powers are absorbed in a sufficiently widespread region, and that the generated heat can be removed safely, without damaging the mode stripper or any surrounding parts.
