Abstract

Extremely flexible hollow fibers with 100 μm-bore size were developed for infrared laser delivery. The hollow fiber was inner coated with silver and a dielectric layer to enhance the reflection rate at an objective wavelength band. The silver layer was plated by using the conventional silver mirror-plating technique. And a thin dielectric layer was coated for low-loss transmission of Nd:YAG and Er:YAG laser light.
