Abstract

Hollow glass fibers are developed using dielectric materials for infrared laser light. The chemical stability of the dielectric and its high optical quality are needed by the fiber to achieve high performance. A polymer-coated hollow fiber that shows high chemical and temperature stability, and only needs a simple fabrication method where the film is coated by a liquid flowing and drying process is developed. The hydrogen polymer, cycric olefin polymer, is used for infrared hollow fibers because it does not have an intense absorption peak in the wavelength region. It shows excellent chemical stability and relatively high-temperature threshold.
