Paper Abstract

Design and fabrication of silver hollow nickel waveguides have been conducted based on the outer-coating method with three inner dielectric layers composed of two zinc sulfide layers and a germanium layer. The sputtering conditions are optimized experimentally for depositing silver, germanium, and zinc sulfide layers and a low-loss waveguide with multiple inner dielectric layers has been fabricated, for the fist time, for Er:YAG laser light transmission.
