High Pressure Optics
Conventional connectors and optical housings operate with water cooling and low shock thresholds.
2 degrees Fahrenheit rise per kW without water cooling
The downhole connector provides the output of the “laser power cord” with rugged termination of the fiber optic cable and micron-precision alignment to the target. Although most connectors require water cooling, Foro Energy developed an advanced thermal system with fluence and backreflection management to enable operation at high power continuous wave power with passive cooling. The component has been engineered and successfully performs at high temperatures and vibrations.
