Paper Abstract

A novel concept of a liquid core lightguide in cylindrical geometry is presented. The coating of a hollow core glass tube with Teflon AFR leads together with a liquid filled core to such a guide. Effective coupling was obtained and low losses were observed. Using this liquid core guide as an optical cell in a spectrometer a significant increase in sensitivity, depending on the length of the guide, may be obtained.
