Abstract

See full text

Systems and methods for multiple-pass stripping of an optical fiber are disclosed. The method include irradiating a first portion of the coating with a first beam of radiation having a wavelength at which the coating is substantially transparent and an intensity that exceeds the optical-damage threshold of the coating to form a first damaged coating portion. The method also includes receiving at least a portion of the first radiation beam and redirecting it as a one or more redirected radiation beam to either the first portion of the coating to assist in forming the first damaged coating portion, or to one or more second portions of the coating to form one or more second damaged coating portions. The method additionally includes exposing a section of the central glass portion damaged portions of the coating.
