Description (max. 300 characters):

In this EVA after a theory introduction about optical fibers, the peculiarities of the  materials used in fiber production,
an Ytterbium-doped preform will be produced.
The preform will be drawn to a fiber with the participation of the students. The Fiber will be characterized (NA, BG losses etc. and a fiber laser will be buit from it.

Contents and Learning Objectives:

- Optical materials for fiber production;
-Techniques for the production of preforms;
- Optical basics for the characterisation of opt. fibers;
-Brief introduction into fiber lasers
-Experimental techniques 

At the end of this course the students will know the basics of optical fiber production and fiber handling

Admission:
Literature:

Course materials will be distributed in digital or paper copies to the students.

Conditions:

A maximum of 5 students is possible due to drawing tower access.
In case of wider interest, the EVA will be re-offered in summer 22
