Paper Abstract

Hollow fibers for transmitting high-power CO2 laser light are fabricated by metal organic chemical vapor deposition method. A dielectric film of metal oxides, such as Y2O3, ZrO2 and Cu2O deposited inside a Ag-coated glass capillary by using metal acetylacetonate as a precursor. The waveguide coated by Cu2O with the bore diameter of 700 μm showed the lowest attenuation of 0.8 dB/m for CO2 laser light. The metal oxide films deposited by MOCVD have high chemical and heat resistivity. Therefore the hollow fiber coated with these materials is suitable for high power laser applications under a severe environment.
