Paper Abstract

Hollow fibers are developed for transmitting high-power lasers emitting ultraviolet, visible, and infrared light. For Nd:YAG lasers, a glass hollow fiber with silver and polymer inner coating enables low-loss transmission of high- peak power, pulsed laser light. For ArF-excimer lasers, a hollow fiber with inner aluminum coating transmits the ultraviolet laser light with low attenuation.
