Paper Abstract

The effect of transmitted CO2 laser energy ((lambda) equals 10.61 micrometers ) upon heating of a plastic hollow waveguide (PHWG) was investigated. The temperature rise of the external tubes wall was recorded by thermocouples or thermal imaging system. The most affected regions of the waveguide were the curved segments and the distal end. Gas cooling and external metal layer reduce this undesired effect.
