Abstract

In this study, hollow fibers with the bore sizes of 320 μm and 250 μm are fabricated by liquid-phase deposition method. A cyclic olefin polymer is adopted as the inner dielectric of the hollow fiber. The fibers showed low-loss properties for Er:YAG laser and the straight loss is 0.7 dB/m for the 320-μm bore fiber.
