It was reported that F2-excimer laser light with low transmission loss was delivered by a hollow fiber of glass-tube substrate and an aluminum thin film coated upon the inside of tube. The absorption of the air was removed by pressurizing the fiber with an inert gas, like nitrogen. The loss spectra of the aluminum-coated fibers fabricated before and after optimizing the fabrication process was analyzed. The transmission losses of aluminum-coated hollow fiber versus purged nitrogen pressure were also discussed.
