Abstract

Silver-cladding-stainless pipe is used as the supporting tube for the infrared hollow fiber to obtain high durability and strong mechanical strength. For the dielectric inner-coating layer, cyclic olefin polymer (COP) and silver iodide (AgI) are used to lower the transmission loss. The COP layer is formed by using liquid-phase coating method as it is done before. For the AgI layer, liquid-filling technique is developed to reduce the waste liquid of iodine solution. Rigid hollow fiber with optimized COP or AgI inner film thicknesses for CO2 laser light were fabricated and reasonable transmission losses for an output tip was demonstrated.
