Lasers and fiber optics

Question: Lasers can be fired into a fiber optic wire and travel through without disturbance, what if you were trying to produce heat with said laser at the end of the fiber optic wire? Would oneself be able to place say, a piece of ceramic to absorb the heat of the laser? Would the heat distribute itself fairly evenly?

Just had an idea for a project and am thinking out a prototype design. Help would be appreciated! More questions will follow as well haha

I would imagine a thorough Googling would get you what you want.
From what I've surmised, I think it would depend on the amount of heat the laser is producing. If it's super hot, the fiber optic material could melt. It won't matter too much what the material coating the fiber optic cable is. What matters is the angle of incident reflection and whatnot.
