Abstract

The development of Er:YAG laser delivery system based on mal-bore hollow fibers for dental applications was presented. The transmission properties and fabrication process of the fiber were also reported. High-energy capability of 150 mJ and relatively low dependence on fiber's bending were shown by the system. The system did not show any signs of damage after transmission of 10,000 pulses.
